Virtual Tour


“BSC prepared me for my career above and beyond my expectations. High school students, I implore you: consider Birmingham-Southern College for your undergraduate education. No matter where you come from you will discover that the quality of the curriculum, the preparedness of faculty, and intellectual environment rivals the best schools in the country.” --Jasmine Higbee ’11, SMFA/Tufts ‘13

    Test optional admission

    As an applicant to BSC, you're not required to report your test scores for standardized college admission tests such as the ACT or SAT. If you choose not to include your test scores, your qualification for admission will be determined by an evaluative interview and an academic portfolio that will include graded papers or school projects with teacher comments, in addition to the regular measures of applicants such as grade point average, high school ranking, and extracurricular activities. Test optional isn't for everyone but we want to make sure all students have access to a BSC-quality education, and we care enough to evaluate you on your own strengths.
