    What GPA do you need to get into East Central University?

    East Central University’s average GPA is 3.38. East Central University does require GPA. This average GPA means East Central University is very selective. Often times, schools in this range are trying to increase their selectivity and “prestige”. We can’t read the minds of East Central application readers, but they likely want to increase the average GPA from 3.38 to 3.55 this year - to play it safe, we recommend striving for the 3.55 GPA.

    *BEFORE CONTINUING PLEASE NOTE: GPA and “prestige” DO NOT mean a college is right for you. East Central University may seem amazing on paper, but you may hate it... That’s why 700,000 students transfer colleges every year - they end up going to the wrong school.

    Main Academic Excellence that is in line with East Central admission standards.

    1. Score at least a 935 on the SAT or 59 on the ACT.
    2. Maintain a GPA of at least a 3.38.

    Join Extracurriculars that Align with East Central’s Values.

    1. Join your school band, a sports team or another group activity. If East Central University values music heavily, for example, then try to participate in an organization related to that topic.
    2. Volunteer in your hometown. Ada has tons of ways to be involved beyond just the college. East Central University wants applicants that are also good ambassadors for the school - they want students who will give back to the local community and broader Ada area in general.
    3. Spend your summer doing something that speaks to your values, personal growth, leadership qualities and other less quantifiable characteristics. East Central needs to see past your test scores and grades - they need to know that you will be a valuable and contributing member of their community. You are more than grades and test scores - your experiences should demonstrate that.

    Prepare Your Application

    1. Write a stellar essay that shows East Central University something they can’t figure out from the other parts of your application. For a detailed guide on writing the best college essay, check this out.
    2. Get teacher recs that speak to your character. If you know what you’re majoring in and include that in your East Central app, try to have at least 1 recommendation from a teacher in that department.
    3. Apply Before the Deadline. Too many students wait until the last minute to submit their application, and too much can go wrong during this precious time window. Since many students are applying on the last day, it’s possible that East Central’s own system crashes. Don’t risk the added stress this can cause - submit your app a few days early.
