Acceptance of High School Earth Science Courses

Geosciences currents reports on preliminary results for a nationwide survey of College Admission staff who report on their willingness to accept high school Earth Science courses.

The preliminary results indicate that 77.0% of the surveyed institutions accept high school Earth science courses, but there can be conditions on that acceptance. Almost 1/3 of those schools stating they accept an Earth science course for admission require that it must be “laboratory-based.” To date, only 5.8 percent of schools responding to the survey do not accept an Earth science course for college admission.
