I had a pretty high ACT scoreMay 07 2013Computer Science
I had a pretty high ACT score. I'm sure that helped, but you probably only need an average ACT score and GPA to get in.

But my REAL advice... if you're thinking about going here...
DON'T. Just don't.
ACT: 28 Female

Seriously, do not worry about itJul 22 2012Computer Science
Seriously, do not worry about it. My first room mate actually bragged about getting into college with her low scores. They really want to make the college bigger.
ACT: 29 Female
Unless you want to go so far in debtJul 22 2012Computer Science
Unless you want to go so far in debt after your freshman year, I would not recommend to try to get in. At 28080.00 a year, there are many other schools available and where you can still get all the grants available when your a junior and senior. This college believes upper classman are not entitled to all the available grants and that they should be used on Freshman students. This was explained to me in Great detail by the Financial director when I questioned why when our expected EFC was only 347.00 that we were not awarded grants that should be available.
ACT: 28 Female
Getting into to Eureka is probably the easiest thingMay 08 2011Political Science
Getting into to Eureka is probably the easiest thing I've ever done. You can pull a 2.0 and probably get in. If you showed up to the ACT you'll probably have the score you need to get in.
ACT: 25 Male
It's easy to get inApr 10 2010Political Science
It's easy to get in. Eureka looks for a high school diploma of a total of a 3.2-3.5. Transfers from college, need a 2.0. The college is really greedy with finances. The college is also dirt poor. The alumni giving rate is one of the worst in the state dispite Ronald Reagan's belonging prior to the college.
