Ten Michigan public universities say they’ll take any applicant with a 3.0 GPA
They hope the announcement encourages more students to apply and go to college.
Ten public universities in Michigan have joined together with a simple message for high school seniors:
You are guaranteed admission if you have a 3-point-oh or above grade point average.
Daniel Hurley is CEO of the Michigan Association of State Universities.
He says the universities want to encourage students who are interested in college but think it's harder to get in than it really is.
“I think there's a misconception out there on the part of students that they need to have a high level of an SAT score, they may need to participate in x number of extracurricular activities.”
The universities in the agreement are Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Ferris State, Lake Superior State, Northern Michigan, Oakland University, Saginaw Valley State, U of M Dearborn, U of M Flint, and Wayne State.
