- Three years of history or social science

How we review your application
Our admissions committee evaluates all facets of your application starting with your high school transcripts. The types of classes you have completed as well as your academic performance are evaluated. We also consider your standardized test scores (SATs or ACTs) and use your highest combination of scores when reviewing your application.
You are evaluated for admission as well as merit scholarships based on your high school GPA and standardized test scores, as we find these two pieces of information most important. We also evaluate experiences you have participated in outside of classes including clubs, activities, sports, volunteering, and employment opportunities.
Although letters of recommendation and an essay are not required and have no bearing in a positive or negative way on the decision to admit you to Bay Path College, you are welcome to submit either or both. The Admissions and Scholarship Committees will use them to get to know you better.
