Criteria for Admission
Randolph College recommends a GPA of 3.0 or above and a competitive SAT V+M (or ACT equivalent) score for admission. The College uses a holistic approach to evaluating applications and considers more than GPA and SAT/ACT scores. Students with a broad range of academic, co-curricular, and extracurricular credentials are admitted each year.

We are glad that you have decided to apply to Randolph College! Be sure to take these three important steps:
- Submit an application via one of the following methods
- Submit your official credentials.
- First-Year Students: If you are applying for the first-year class, request official transcripts from your high school and your official test scores from College Board or ACT.
- Transfer Students: If you are applying as a transfer student, please submit transcripts from the college(s) you’ve attended; high school credentials are only needed if you’ve completed less than 30 credit hours.
- Visit campus. Newly-enrolled students tell us that the visit, and the experience they have meeting students and faculty, is one of the biggest factors in their decisions. A visit is not required for admission, but we strongly recommend it. We can also put you into contact with faculty and students to get the “inside information” you require.
The Cost to Attend Randolph College
Selecting a college is an important decision that requires accurate and clear financial information. Therefore, we believe that every student and family:
- should have access to financial aid counseling at the beginning of the inquiry and application process to get questions answered and to allow time to develop a financial game plan;
- is entitled to an understanding—early in the inquiry and application process—of the approximate average cost of tuition, room, and board; and
- has the right to request reconsideration of the financial aid award when there is a material change in circumstances, such as loss of income, unexpected medical expenses, or changes in dependent status.
Get Answers Early. The professionals in Randolph College’s Office of Student Financial Services (SFS) can answer your questions, work through “what if?” scenarios based on your family’s resources, and be a resource for you. We also encourage you to use our Financial Aid Calculator at www.collegecostcalculator/randolph to get an estimate of your cost to attend Randolph College, and then call one of our financial aid counselors to discuss the results. Your admissions counselor will introduce you to an SFS team member.
