Guaranteed Admissions Program

  • SBLSD partnership helps seniors receive guaranteed admission into college 

    To help increase access and reduce barriers to attending college, SBLSD is participating in the Guaranteed Admissions Program with select universities in Washington — Western, Central, Eastern, and Washington State universities, Pacific Lutheran University and The Evergreen State College.


    After meeting eligibility requirements, guaranteed admissions means that a student knows they are accepted into a university before completing the paperwork required in the regular application process. This eliminates the guesswork and time spent completing various college applications when admission status would not normally be known ahead of time. Student eligibility components include GPA and completion of College Academic Distribution Requirements, with requirements varying by university.  


    SBLSD is one of 66 school districts statewide participating in the program with a shared commitment to meeting students’ college and career goals. The program focuses on increasing access and credential completion, especially for students who may not have considered going to college.


    For more information about the Guaranteed Admissions Program, please contact your school’s counselor.
