Admissions Requirements (U.S.): First Time in College
Barry University accepts applications on a rolling basis. However, it is in your best interest to apply as soon as possible. Please note that general admission to Barry University does not guarantee acceptance into all academic majors. Consult the academic requirements for your academic area of interest.
Applicants who have never attended a college or university, and applicants who are coming to Barry with less than 12 hours of transferable college credits are considered first year applicants. This also applies to high school students with advanced placement college credits.
First year applicants are required to complete the following application process:
- Complete an online undergraduate application by creating a myBarry account or submitting a Common App. (There is no application fee.)
- Submit transcripts from all secondary and post secondary institutions.
- SAT or ACT scores are required for students who are applying for admissions to Barry University (applies to students under the age of 21). When submitting an ACT and/or SAT score you may:
- Request that official scores be sent to Barry directly from the testing agency. The Barry University code for SAT I: 5053; ACT: 0718.
- Self-report your scores on your application. Enter your highest score for each section exactly as you receive them. If you are self-reporting your scores, you will be required to submit official score reports only if you are admitted and choose to enroll.
- If you have completed a G.E.D., forward the official results of that examination and the high school transcripts documenting your secondary education.
- For assistance with the application process and a full description of admissions requirements, please consult your program pages, the Barry University catalog, or better yet, speak with your admissions counselor when you visit us on campus.
