Application Instructions and Requirements

Thiel College does not have a minimum grade point average or standardized test score needed for admission, as each student is evaluated on their own academic, extracurricular and social merits. However, research shows success at Thiel College can be measured by a student's performance in their high school course work and rigor.

After submitting an application, students must also submit:

  • Official high school transcripts (required)
  • Scores from the ACT/SAT (optional)
  • Thiel College accepts scores from both the old and new versions of the SAT. We will superscore the Math and Critical Reading portions of the SAT to give you the highest overall composite score. However, Thiel will not superscore a mix of old and new versions of the SAT. For more information about converting old and new SAT scores, students can use the College Board’s SAT Score Converter. Thiel College does not superscore the ACT.
