Academic Opportunity Program
The Academic Opportunity Program (AOP) is designed to identify first-semester freshman students who did not meet the admission requirements as a result of significant extenuating circumstance(s). The program is limited to a small number of students who provide adequate documentation with regard to their extenuating circumstance. Applications are available through the Office of Admissions.
The AOP Committee will review completed files on a continuing basis for fall semester starting in February. To be considered for the last review period, complete AOP files must be received by July 1. Students who wish to be considered for spring semester must submit a complete AOP application by November 1.
First-semester freshmen not meeting admission requirements may attend an accredited community college or four-year university to gain admission to SFA for a future semester. Students who successfully complete at least 15 semester hours of transferable work after high school graduation with a 2.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale will be eligible for admission to SFA. Applicants will need to reapply for admission to SFA for the desired semester and submit official college transcript(s).
Change in SAT/ACT Scores or Rank-In-Class
SFA will automatically review the admission files if students retake the SAT or ACT and request official scores to be sent to the university. In addition, if changes occur that improve the high school record, applicants should provide the Office of Admissions with an updated high school transcript. Students who submit additional SAT or ACT scores or submit an updated high school transcript will be notified if they meet the admission requirements.
