UM Arabic Flagship takes a wholistic approach to the application review process. Though standardized test scores are taken into consideration, there is no minimum ACT/SAT score required for admission. Similarly, the program has no minimum GPA requirement, though GPA is taken into consideration. Furthermore, students need not have studied Arabic prior to applying.
Instead, the program weighs a variety of factors including GPA, rigor of coursework, prior study of any language (not exclusively Arabic), community service/involvement, work experience, leadership, writing ability, time abroad (if applicable), future academic and career plans, language aptitude, and ability to succeed in a rigorous academic program, among others.
