Academic Profile Codes (APC)

The Academic Profile Code (APC) is an internal academic index used in the initial evaluation of applicants. This is a three-digit code that is calculated by NPS Admissions. The APC summarizes pertinent portions of a student's prior academic performance. The three independent digits reflect an individual's cumulative grade-point average, exposure to and performance in mathematics courses and exposure to and performance in selected science and engineering areas. Some departments have additional application requirements, which are outlined within this catalog under the specified program.
