SAU to Waive ACT and SAT Score Requirements For Summer and Fall 2020 Semesters
Southern Arkansas University is waiving the ACT and SAT score requirements for the summer and fall 2020 semesters. This also includes the need to re-test for beginning freshman admission for both semesters as well.
“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.”
Other student admission requirements must be met including a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.30 on non-remedial courses on their 7th or 8th semester high school transcript to get the waiver. 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.
Please contact the SAU Office of Admissions at 870-235-4040 with any questions.
