No ACT/SAT Required!

At SIU, we know that the best indicator of college success is how hard you worked in high school, not how well you scored on a test. That’s why we no longer require submission of SAT or ACT scores for students with a high school GPA of 2.75 or above.

SAT/ACT optional admission applies only to prospective undergraduates and transfer students with less than 26 credit hours from the U.S. Please visit our graduate and international admissions pages for requirements for graduate and international students.
