After the February 1 application deadline, all complete applications are reviewed by the Office of Admissions staff and the Admissions Committee. Semifinalists will be selected to participate in Semifinalist Day in March. Final selection of accepted students and alternates is made in April. 

GSSM does not have minimum GPA or standardized test scores for admission. However, competitive applicants have typically exceeded the minimum academic coursework required and have earned excellent grades.

New Student Orientation

All students selected as members of the Class of 2020 and their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) must attend New Student Orientation on Saturday, May 18, 2019, on the GSSM campus. Students will select their roommate, take the math assessment, and select their class schedule. Parent sessions will cover aspects of safety on GSSM’s campus, community rules and policies, health services and financial information. 

Alternates

Alternates meet the requirements for acceptance to GSSM but cannot be housed due to the limited residential capacity. Offers of admission will be extended to alternates as space becomes available. The Admissions office will not release the number of alternates or their ranking. The number of alternates selected varies from year to year. Spaces are no longer filled once the GSSM academic year begins.
