The Admission Committee evaluates applicants to determine if they have the qualifications and commitment needed to succeed in our rigorous academic environment. With an average acceptance rate of 80%, Neumont students are dedicated and driven tech-geeks. On average, students who enrolled in Fall 2015 had a cumulative high school GPA of 3.21, an average composite ACT score of 24, and/or an average combined math and reading SAT score of 1100. The Committee relies heavily on academic achievements, such as standardized test score (ACT and/or SAT) and cumulative high school GPA, to assess an applicant.
However, we also recognize that not all of your strengths can be shown through a test score, so the Committee also evaluates life experience, personal essays, technology expertise, interest in technology, and proven work ethic. If there is something about your background that we should evaluate beyond test scores and GPA contact our Office of Admissions.
To ensure your application is an accurate reflection of your qualifications, please remember to:
Take your application seriously: Your application is similar to a homework assignment. Remember, what's appropriate when you're texting isn't appropriate on an application.
Avoid sloppiness: Pay attention to spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Proofread your application before submitting.
Ask others to read your application: Their comments can be invaluable.
Get clarification: If you're not sure how to handle a question, ask your Admission Officer for clarification.
