The University System of Georgia (USG) will temporarily waive test score requirements for Fall 2022 admission at 23 of the 26 USG institutions effective March 18, 2022. The temporary waiver does not include applicants to Georgia College & State University, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and the University of Georgia.
For Fall Semester, the remaining institutions have two options to make admission decisions:
- Use existing freshman index that includes test scores for either the SAT or ACT.
- Allow students to apply for Fall 2022 admission without submitting ACT or SAT scores. Students must still meet all other admission requirements, including adjusted minimum grade point average eligibility thresholds for each USG sector, which are as follows: 3.4 for research universities, 3.2 for comprehensive universities and 3.0 for state universities. State colleges have open admission policies and accept all qualified applicants.
Students who have SAT/ACT scores may still submit them, and test scores are required to apply for Zell Miller scholarships. The test optional path is not available for dual enrollment. Students applying for dual enrollment must still meet existing admissions requirements.
