Over a third of all applicants to Stetson University will not be admitted, and successful applicants tend to have solid SAT or ACT scores and a strong academic record. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. The data show that most students who got in had high school averages of "B" or higher, combined SAT scores of about 1500 or higher, and ACT composite scores of 21 or better.

They want to see that you have taken rigorous high school courses that have prepared you for college-level work in core subject areas. Also, Stetson uses the Common Application and has holistic admissions.
