Undergraduate and Graduate Admission Decisions


After all required items are received, Kenner’s Undergraduate Admission Committee and Graduate Admissions Committee evaluate the application and notify students of their admission status. If needed, the Committees may request additional information to evaluate the applicant’s readiness for undergraduate studies.


Undergraduate: Applicants for undergraduate programs should hold a high school diploma, GED, or associate’s degree with a cumulative GPA of 2.00 (or higher) on a 4-point scale. Graduate: Applicants for graduate programs should hold a bachelor’s degree with a cumulative GPA of 3.00 (or higher) on a 4-point scale.

For undergraduate and graduate applicants, the GPA alone does not guarantee acceptance at Kenner since other admission requirements are also variables in an admission decision (See Application Procedures for Undergraduate and Graduate Programs).

A limited number of applicants who do not meet these GPA requirements for undergraduate and graduate programs may be admitted on probationary status if their application materials include other evidence of their ability to succeed at Kenner.

Students who complete nine (9) undergraduate credit hours at Kenner with a 2.0 (or higher) GPA or a 3.0 (or higher) GPA for graduate credit hours—will be removed from probationary status. Students who do not meet these standards will be withdrawn from the program. For more information about probationary admission, contact the Admission Office.
