General Admission Policy

Prospective students are encouraged to call the Enrollment Office to schedule an appointment with an admissions officer and visit the campus.

Goodwin College has an open enrollment policy; however, a personal interview with an admissions officer is required for all interested applicants. Acceptance into the college requires the attainment of a high school diploma, General Education Diploma, HiSET, or equivalent and successful completion of the interview. Admission into the college does not guarantee admission into programs with selective admission requirements. After acceptance into the college and successful completion of all prerequisites, students may apply to the selective admission programs.

Prior to registration, placement evaluations in reading comprehension, sentence skills, mathematics, and algebra are administered to all incoming students enrolled in degree programs and most certificate programs. Matriculating students entering with an Associate's Degree or higher from another accredited institution are exempt from the placement evaluation. Transfer students meeting the program requirements for English and mathematics are exempt from the placement evaluation.
