Georgia Southern University will continue the temporary waiver of test score admission requirements for undergraduates for Academic Year 2024-2025 (Fall 2024, Spring 2025, and Summer 2025), following approval of the extension by the University System of Georgia last week.
For Academic Year 2024-2025, that means Georgia Southern has two options when making undergraduate admission decisions:
- First-year students applying to Georgia Southern University through the summer 2025 semester can be admitted without an ACT or SAT score, if they have a high school GPA of 3.2 or higher on the 17 required high school courses.
- Students who have a high school GPA of less than 3.2 on the 17 required high school courses must submit official ACT or SAT scores along with their high school transcript to be considered for admission.
In addition, test optional admission will now be extended to Dual Enrollment students starting fall 2023 term, and extending through the 2023-2024 and 2024-2025 academic years (Fall 2023, Spring 2024, Summer 2024, Fall 2024, Spring 2025 and Summer 2025).
Test scores will continue to be required to apply for Zell Miller scholarships in accordance with State of Georgia requirements.
“This is great news for Georgia’s students,” said Amy Ballagh, PhD., vice president for enrollment management. “It makes the admissions process easier for students and their families and allows us to provide quicker decisions to the thousands of students who are interested in Georgia Southern.”
