Missouri State University is temporarily waiving the requirement of an ACT or SAT score for freshman applicants.
Students applying for freshman admission with no ACT/SAT score, or those with low test scores, can now be considered for admission.
- Students with a 3.25 cumulative GPA or higher may be admitted without a test score.
- Students with a cumulative GPA less than 3.25 must still meet our selection index requirement.
- All freshman admission applicants must still meet the high school core curriculum requirement.
Students who graduated from high school three or more years previously are exempt from the selection index and core requirements.
This temporary policy only applies to applications for first-time students beginning in summer or fall 2020.
