University Park, IL –(ENEWSPF)—February 3, 2015. Admission to a four-year university for highly qualified students has been streamlined at Governors State University with a new program called Freshman Fridays. Attending the session, providing the appropriate documentation and meeting the qualifications enables graduating seniors to apply to GSU and receive an instant admissions decision on-the-spot. The future GSU students can meet with academic and financial aid advisors, take a tour of the university and see what residence hall life is like.
“Freshman Fridays is our way of making the process of college admissions more streamlined and accessible,” says Kristy Goodwin, director of recruitment and outreach. “GSU offers an innovative freshman program that attracts students who want the benefit of small class sizes, a creative learning environment and individual attention from their professors.”
To qualify for direct admissions on Freshman Fridays, graduating seniors must meet the following criteria: have an unweighted GPA of 3.0 on 4.0 scale, have a minimum composite ACT score of 20 with at least a 20 in the English and math components and provide their official high school transcripts and official ACT scores (scores may be posted on the official transcript). Additionally, GSU will waive the application fee for qualified applicants attending Freshman Fridays.
Freshman Fridays will be held on February 20, March 6, April 3 and May 1 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Governors State University is located at 1 University Parkway, University Park, Illinois.
