Applicants are admitted to Tusculum University because they have demonstrated the potential to succeed in a rigorous environment and shown further evidence of their capability to contribute to the Tusculum community as a whole. The curriculum at Tusculum University places strong emphasis on writing, analytical reading and critical analysis. Applicants are assessed for these skills early in their college careers. Assistance is provided to applicants needing further development for academic success.
In determining an applicant’s readiness for college, criteria for admission are both objective and subjective. The University examines academic records, class rank, and SAT or ACT scores. We know that a family’s financial situation has no relationship to an applicant’s preparation, character, potential, or intellect. The University adheres strictly to a financially need-blind policy.
