College Admission Requirements


  • GPA at least 2.2 and specific course requirements; usually includes two years of a foreign language. (note: scholarship G.P.A. requirements are usually higher)

  • Some colleges require an essay and/or resume
  • Letters of recommendation; complete recommendation worksheet form, provide a stamped envelope and at least 10 days notice

  • W.U.E. (Western Undergraduate Exchange)
    • The Western Undergraduate Exchange (W.U.E) is a program through which students in participating states may enroll in designated institutions and programs in other participating states at a special, reduced tuition level. Students do not need to demonstrate financial need to receive the W.U.E tuition benefit. When admitted as a W.U.E student, the student will pay 150 percent of the institution's regular resident tuition (i.e., 50 percent more than resident tuition), plus any fees that all students are required to pay. Contact the institution you plan to attend to find out if they participate in the W.U.E. program.
  • College information available in counseling office, INTERNET, college fairs or by contacting the college directly

On-site Admission and Recruiter Visits

College recruiters visit Cibola throughout the year and will be located on the concourse during A lunch. Listen to the announcements or check in counseling. Most in-state colleges schedule at least one on-site admissions and waive the admission fee.

Scholarship information is listed on our website, available in the counseling office and posted in English classrooms monthly. Students are welcome to review information in the scholarship file located in the counseling office. Most Bridge scholarships are awarded automatically upon application.
