Admissions Criteria for the Joint Program

FTC

Straight Admit:
Incoming freshmen students must meet one of the following criteria to be admitted to any of the five majors in the program.

  • Math ACT ≥ 25

Conditional Admit:
Incoming freshmen who do not meet the above criteria can be conditionally admitted to the program. This means that they will not be eligible to sign up for UMKC classes until they have completed one successful semester here at Rockhurst. This successful semester is defined as having completed either Precalculus with a B or better or Calculus I with a C or better, and also having an overall GPA ≥ 2.7.

Following this successful semester students are then eligible to take UMKC classes starting in the fall of their sophomore year. It is still possible that a conditional admit student may finish the program in four years however they should be prepared for the possibility that it may take five years.

FIP:
Incoming freshmen who enter Rockhurst as part of the FIP program cannot be admitted to the program until they have completed their Freshmen year. In order to be eligible for the program at this time they must have completed Precalculus with a B or better, Calculus I with a C or better, and also have an overall GPA ≥ 2.7. It will take students from this program five years to complete the program.
