Incoming Freshman Students

Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University is committed to admitting students whose academic records indicate a high potential for success. The University, consistent with its mission, is dedicated to providing higher education access and opportunity. We recognize that some students have potential for success not clearly evident through test scores alone.

Therefore, to be fully accepted into Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University, one must have a Composite Predictive Index (CPI) score of 18 or higher. The CPI score is a combination of the high school grade point average (GPA) and ACT/SAT scores. The GPA, however, cannot be lower than a 2.0. If you do not initially meet admission requirements to be fully accepted, one must have a minimum CPI score of 16 for conditional acceptance.

A freshman student is a student entering the University after completing high school requirements (students with dual enrollment credits are classified as freshmen). A student who has studied in another post-secondary college or university with less than 12 transferable credit hours with a grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 will be classified as a freshman.


Minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) 2.0 to be accepted. The final high school transcript must reflect a minimum 2.0 GPA or higher.
