For students age 22 or older, or transferring in with 60+ credit hours, or who have conferred an associate’s degree from an accredited institution, the SAT and ACT score requirements may be waived if the waiver benefits the student.  Transfer awards range from $1,500 to $5,000 per year.

ACT scores are based on best composite score. SAT scores are based on Math and Critical Reading sections only. The writing section of the SAT is not considered for acceptance or academic scholarships. We also super score both the ACT (all four subtests) and SAT (Math and Critical Reading only). All high school GPA's are recalculated (unweighted).
