The requirements for admission to Southern Connecticut State University are intended to ensure that students offered admission are adequately prepared for the academic program and will benefit significantly from their total college experience.

Southern's individualized program of admission assures that the student's experience through and since high school is taken into consideration. Appropriate innovative programs and courses taken through non-traditional curricula are also given full consideration. Therefore, students who believe they meet the spirit of the University admission program are encouraged to apply.

Students are admitted without regard to age, sex, race, color, creed, sexual orientation, national origin, or disability, and it is expected that the student body will reflect a wide range of cultural values and backgrounds.
