“BSC prepared me for my career above and beyond my expectations. High school students, I implore you: consider Birmingham-Southern College for your undergraduate education. No matter where you come from you will discover that the quality of the curriculum, the preparedness of faculty, and intellectual environment rivals the best schools in the country.” --Jasmine Higbee ’11, SMFA/Tufts ‘13

Test optional admission
As an applicant to BSC, you're not required to report your test scores for standardized college admission tests such as the ACT or SAT. If you choose not to include your test scores, your qualification for admission will be determined by an evaluative interview and an academic portfolio that will include graded papers or school projects with teacher comments, in addition to the regular measures of applicants such as grade point average, high school ranking, and extracurricular activities. Test optional isn't for everyone but we want to make sure all students have access to a BSC-quality education, and we care enough to evaluate you on your own strengths.
We know filling out forms and applications can be a bit overwhelming, so we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible.
If you still have questions about course requirements you may want to check out general education core requirements in the BSC College Catalog or course equivalents for Alabama community colleges. Or feel free to call us in admission at 205/226-4696 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to make this process easy for you!
