Southern Arkansas University will waive the ACT or SAT composite score requirements as well as the need to re-test for beginning freshman admission for both summer and fall 2020.
“In these exceptional times, many students are having challenges in taking and/or retaking the ACT,” said Dr. Trey Berry, president of SAU. “We want to allow students to have the opportunity to gain admission to SAU this year with this waiver.”
The waiver will be approved provided the student meets other admission requirements and has a minimum cumulative 2.30 GPA on non-remedial courses on their 7th or 8th semester high school transcript. Students with a high school GPA between 2.0-2.29 and special circumstances may submit an appeal to be considered for approval with the Office of Admissions.
Freshmen are required to have placement scores. SAU will use other assessment instruments or scores for course placement as needed during registration.
