Posted on 04/09/2020

Adjustments to University System of Georgia Admission Criteria following the Cancellation of SAT and ACT Testing

Effective March 19, 2020, the Chancellor has approved the temporary adjustment of admission requirements for The University System of Georgia (USG) institutions in response to the cancellation of spring SAT and ACT testing dates. This adjustment is for prospective students seeking admission into associate and baccalaureate programs identified in Board of Regents’ Policy 4.2.1.1, at state colleges, state universities, comprehensive universities and research universities in the USG for the summer or fall 2020 semester.

USG Schools:

  • Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College
  • Albany State University
  • Armstrong State University
  • Atlanta Metropolitan State College
  • Augusta University
  • Bainbridge State College
  • Clayton State University
  • College of Coastal Georgia
  • Columbus State University
  • Dalton State College
  • Darton State College
  • East Georgia State College
  • Fort Valley State University
  • Georgia College and State University
  • Georgia Gwinnett College
  • Georgia Highlands College
  • Georgia Institute of Technology*
  • Georgia Southern University
  • Georgia Southwestern State University
  • Georgia State University
  • Gordon State College
  • Kennesaw State University
  • Middle Georgia State University
  • Savannah State University
  • South Georgia State College
  • University of Georgia*
  • University of North Georgia
  • University of West Georgia
  • Valdosta State University

*Since Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of Georgia have already admitted their freshmen classes, and have students on waiting lists, this change does not affect admissions at those institutions.

In light of the decision made by the College Board and ACT to suspend the availability of testing during the COVID-19 virus pandemic, prospective students applying for admission in fall 2020 will not be required to submit an ACT or SAT score.
