Get Ready for Rose-Hulman NOW!

High school is the perfect time to start laying the groundwork for your Rose-Hulman education – and the rest of your life.

Our students are typically at the top of their high school graduating classes with scores in the 95th percentile on the SAT or ACT – plus they have taken a lot of high school science, math and English.

Here’s how you can get ready for a great college experience and a wonderful career:

We expect all incoming freshmen to meet the following high school course requirements:

  • 4 years English
  • 4 years Mathematics
  • 2 years Social Sciences
  • 1 year Biology
  • 1 year Chemistry
  • 1 year Physics

Minimum test scores from either the SAT of 500 Critical Reading & 550 Math or ACT 21 English & 24 Math

Consideration is also given to your class rank, grades and the strength of your curriculum.

We also take into account your involvement in student activities, such as sports, student government and music. We have an active fraternity/sorority system, more than 90 clubs and student organizations and NCAA Division III athletic teams. Make sure you take some time away from the books. After all, education happens in the world around us too.
