High School Juniors & Seniors Admission Process

Want to become a Royal? Here’s how to do it in three steps!

Step One: Submit Your Application

Queens has two ways to apply – the Queens application and the Common Application.

The Queens application allows you to apply directly to the university in a simple way. The Common Application lets you apply to multiple colleges and universities at once, but with more steps to go through.

One of the few direct admit options in the state, this program is open to eligible high school students interested in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program. The benefit of this program is that eligible students are not required to apply for admission to the competitive upper-division nursing program.

Eligibility Requirements:

To be considered for admission to the Direct Admit program, incoming students must meet all of the following criteria:

· Graduated from high school within 12 months prior to enrollment at Queens.

· Minimum unweighted core high school GPA of 3.5 (no rounding).

· Minimum ACT score of 22 or SAT score of 1100

Once admitted, the student must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and all coursework must be completed at Queens. An academic advisor will help you keep track of your eligibility and degree progress as a direct admit student.

Priority Deadline for the Direct Admit program – November 15

If you are interested and eligible for this program, make sure you select “Nursing (pre-licensure)” as your intended major when completing your Queens application or Common Application.

Step Two: Official High School Transcript(s)

Request an official high school transcript be sent to Queens.

Step Three: Optional Elements

Queens wants to see you as a whole person, not just numbers on a page. So, we’re asking you – what else do you think is important to share with us that will tell the whole story of you?

Official SAT or ACT Scores

Queens University of Charlotte is permanently an ACT and SAT test-optional college. We care deeply about what you are doing each day in your community. Your application will be complete and fully considered whether you send us scores or not.

If you want to complete your application without test scores, make sure to select “no” under Testing plan. If you forget or change your mind later, contact your admission counselor, who can update that for you.

If you want to complete your application with test scores, send us a PDF of your score report to or have the testing agency send your scores directly to Queens using these codes:

  • Queens SAT code: 5560
  • Queens ACT code: 3148

Letters of Recommendation

Do you work with a teacher, school counselor, or community leader who knows you really well? If you do, we’d love to hear from them through a letter of recommendation.


Interviews are a great way for us to get to know you and for you to get to know us. We want to meet you and to put a face with a name.

There’s no reason to feel nervous or uncertain! The admissions team is here to help you. Contact your admissions counselor to plan your interview.

Step Four: You’ve done it!

You’ve applied to Queens University of Charlotte! Now that you’ve done all the hard work, sit back and let the admissions team do their work.
