New UNC System Minimum Requirements

On March 30, 2020, the UNC System announced changes to the minimum admission requirements (listed below) for the class of 2021. These updates will help assist students impacted by changing test dates during this time as many events are canceled due to covid-19. Juniors applying to public North Carolina colleges during the 2020-21 application cycle must achieve one of the following to meet minimum admission requirements:
  • A weighted GPA of 2.5
  • A composite score of 19 on the ACT
  • A combined (reading and math) score of 1010 on the SAT
Typically, applicants are required to earn the GPA and either the ACT or the SAT minimum.  However, due to circumstances limiting testing options, voted on and approved new minimum standards for admission requirements.  Please contact Crosby Scholars at with questions.
