Samford University seeks students who have demonstrated high standards of scholarship, outstanding personal character and serious educational aims. Successful freshman applicants to Samford University are encouraged to provide the following: Essay, High School Transcript(s), Academic Recommendation, Official Test Scores. Because Samford’s admission and scholarship process is holistic, we do not have set minimum scores for admission or scholarships. However, our middle 50% scores are 23-29 for the ACT, 1150-1380 for the SAT. Our first scholarship deadline is December 1.
Transfer students generally receive favorable admission review when they present a minimum cumulative 2.50 grade point average on all college-level course work, provided they have attempted at least 24 semester credits, or 36 quarter credits, at institutions accredited by one of the regional accrediting agencies. Please contact the transfer admission counselor with questions. Students who have completed less than 24 semester credits must also submit their official high school transcript and ACT or SAT test scores.
In addition to campus tours, the Office of Admission offers customizable options for prospective students that are available on a seasonal basis. This includes an overnight stay with a current student (select Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights for high school juniors and seniors), class visits, faculty appointments and admission appointments. Call 205-726-3673 or go to www.samford.edu/visit to schedule your visit today. Please keep in mind that our office needs at least one week prior notice to personalize a visit.
