The University of La Verne will offer guaranteed admission to students from 12 local school districts who meet still unspecified minimum requirements in their standardized test scores and weighted GPAs, the university announced late last week.
Students who are accepted through the program, called the Partnership for Access to College Education, or PACE, will also have their application fees waived and receive at least $10,000 in financial aid per year. Applications are open now for the fall semester.
Rod Leveque, a university spokesman, said the requirements for students’ GPAs and their scores on either the SAT or ACT “might vary slightly from year to year depending on the global trends of the incoming class.”
“In all cases, those requirements will be communicated to the districts on a year-by-year basis,” Leveque said.
The participating school districts are the Alhambra, Bonita, Covina-Valley, Duarte, Fontana, Monrovia, Montebello, Pomona, Upland, West Covina and Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School Districts, as well as the Chaffey Joint Union High School District and San Diego College Bound program.
