Freshmen

AT GORDON, YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO IT ALONE.

We'll come alongside you to provide support, encouragement, and every opportunity for success. It is this commitment to collaboration across every aspect of the student experience that sets a Gordon education apart.

Applying is easier than ever as incoming Freshmen are not required to submit test scores!

Students may provide SAT/ACT or Accuplacer scores to test out of learning support courses.
