Careful consideration is given to every student who applies to California University of Pennsylvania. Although each application is individually reviewed and evaluated, we base our admission decision for first-time students on several key criteria, including cumulative grade point average at the end of junior year of high school, type and difficulty of course work taken, class rank, letters of recommendation, high school and/or community activities, on-campus interview, and standardized test scores.

- A minimum 2.30 high school GPA based on a 4.0 scale
- 920 or greater on SAT Critical Reading and Math only or 20 or greater on ACT composite
