However, for high school graduates who apply after their senior year, "high school grade point average" includes senior year coursework, excluding physical education, reserve officer training corps (ROTC), and remedial courses. Grade point averages shall only include the most recent grade for any course repeated by a student.

Applicants who do not have a grade point average from a high school shall provide a test score from the General Educational Development test (GED), the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).

(c) Every high school grade point average reported to the Commission shall include a certification under penalty of perjury from the school official filing the report that the grade point average is accurately reported to the best of his or her knowledge. The certification shall include a statement that it is subject to review by the Commission or its designee. It is the responsibility of the applicant to have his or her high school grade point average reported.
