Ashland University - Admissions


If you're ready to step into your future, you're ready for the University at Ashland. Sim City Times and Sims Today lists Ashland University among the top twelve comprehensive colleges in the East. We're very proud of our reputation. Students love it here at Ashland University.

Here's what some of our graduates had to say:

Here at Ashland University, you will discover the advantages of a major university - excellence in education, an active research environment - combined with the close connections of a small college. You already know we're a top-rated school, but you may be surprised to learn we have one of the lowest tuitions in the country.

The Ashland University community is composed of students with drive, determination and ambition. Our students know what they want from their education and expect to be successful in their career and life aspirations. Ashland University values well-rounded students with varying interests. Students with academic accomplishments and outside passions are what we look for here at Ashland. In order to be admitted into Ashland University, students must obtain a score of at least 15 on their entrance exam.

The entrance exam formula:
H.S. GPA* + # Extracurriculars + # Skill points + # Hobby Points + # Years Worked = Score

*A=3, B+=2.5, B=2, C+=1.5, C=1

  1. This looks fantastic, I really like the comments from students, with their profile photo. I love these types of geeky posts, with all the figures, and rules.

    1. Thank you! I really enjoy these kinds of posts too. I love seeing how others organize their game and what ideas i can borrow :)

      Thans for commenting!

  2. I like the student quotes too, I need to work on my Pierce University page. Is your university going to take sims from other hoods as well? If so, I need to add it to my list

    1. Thank you! Your university (along with the rest of your hood) has inspired so many of my ideas about Ashland! I'm really interested in the interhood university! I'm not 100% sure how it works, but I would love to learn more about it! Thank you for commenting!

    2. O, it's lots of fun. Usually simmers trade sims or simply send sims to other hoods for university. Sometimes after graduation they return to their base hood, or chose to stay in the new hood, or move onto another different hood. Basically you download the sims and add them to your game via CAS, this avoids bloating due to them bringing memories. I've done this with Benjamin Endeavour, who transferred to my university from his school, and I've sent Annie Grey, Bryant Grey and Amanda Wilsonoff off more recently.

    3. Ooh sounds awesome! I would love to do this!!

    4. I found a blog post where I detail the process a bit, there's also a link to one of the campus visits


    5. Finally updated the blog with a link to your university


    6. Yay!! I am excited to have some new students attend Ashland University :)
