Albany State University Waives Test Score Requirement for 2021
Friday, August 28th, 2020
Albany State University (ASU) is waiving the SAT and ACT scores for students applying for the spring, summer and fall 2021 semester. This extended adaptation of the admissions process is due to uncertainty about the scheduling of SAT/ACT testing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This change was authorized by the University System of Georgia. Students will still have to meet other established requirements for admissions.
“We have received positive feedback from our freshmen concerning the waive of test scores, and we are glad that prospective students will continue to easily apply for admission without any added pressure during this time,” said Kenyatta Johnson, vice president of enrollment management and student success.
Additionally, the ASU Foundation will continue to provide the Local Scholars Grant to students who graduate from one of ASU’s 28 county service area high schools.
A $1,000 grant will be awarded if a student’s final high school transcript grade point average (GPA) reflects a 3.5 or above.
A $500 grant will be awarded if a student’s final high school transcript GPA reflects between a 3.0 and 3.49.
A $100 book voucher will be awarded if a student’s final high school transcript GPA reflects between a 2.5 and a 2.99.
The application deadline for spring enrollment at ASU is November 1. ASU offers over 60 programs including certificates, associates, bachelors, masters and a specialist degree.
