Discussion of Hampton University's Admissions Standards:

In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent students who were accepted. Most had SAT scores (RW+M)) of 900 or higher, an ACT composite of 17 or higher, and a high school average of a "B-" or better. Your chances improve measurably if your grades and test scores are above these lower ranges, and you can see that most admitted students had solid "B" and "A" averages. If you have strong grades, you don't need to worry about your ACT and SAT scores: students with a 3.3 average or a top 10% class ranking can choose to not submit standardized test scores.

Grades and test scores are just one part of the admissions equation for Hampton University. The university has holistic admissions, and as the admissions website notes, the school looks at "overall academic achievement, characteristics that demonstrate leadership potential and personal qualities indicative of the highest ethical values." To assess these non-numeric characteristics, the Hampton University application asks for an application essay, a list of extracurricular activities, and a letter of recommendation. Finally, Hampton University like nearly all universities will be impressed if you've taken rigorous high school courses. AP, IB, Honors, and Dual Enrollment courses can all improve your chances if completed successfully.
