FA. Admission to the College (BP)

South Plains College maintains an “open admissions” policy and accepts all students for enrollment regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, disability or age. An applicant who is a graduate of an accredited high school, or has successfully completed a nontraditional secondary educational program, including home school will be admitted upon presentation of a properly authenticated high school transcript or the equivalent.  Prospective students who are not graduates of an accredited high school may be admitted under any of the following conditions:

  1. Successful completion of the High School Level General Education Development Test (GED) provided that the applicant meets the age requirements for the GED.
  2. Individual approval granted by the Dean of Enrollment Services, according to established criteria based on commonly-accepted practices in higher education.

Prospective students who are transferring from another college or university must not be under disciplinary or academic suspension at the last college attended and must meet the minimum academic standards of South Plains College.

International students must: 1.) meet requirements outlined for high school graduates or college transfer students; 2.) achieve a minimum approved score on the TOEFL; and 3.) submit proof of financial ability. 

Specific policies and procedures governing the College’s admission policy are found in the current General Catalog.
