Academic Community of North Hall

Bookmark and Share

The Academic Community sets out to select the most well rounded first year students who hold academia and community involvement at the highest priority. Students who are accepted into the Academic community are graded on a comprehensive 80 point scale.

Applications due:

  • March 18, 2015 for returning students
  • June 19, 2015 for new students

The scale is based on the following criteria:

  • Students accepted to this community exemplify solid ACT scores and cumulative grade point averages.
  • In addition to academic success, students will be graded on their community involvement.
  • Finally each student will have to submit written responses to several situation-based essay questions.

The entire selection process aims to find those students who align their personal traits and study habits closest to the mission of St. Ambrose. Students applying for/accepted to the Honors Program may request North Hall, but no application is guaranteed to be accepted.
