SAT/ACT Not Required for General Admission

Main Content

You are more than a test score.

We know that the best indicator of your success in college is how hard you worked in high school, not how well you scored on a standardized test.

SIU does not require the submission of SAT and ACT scores for admission and scholarship purposes.

More good news:

If you plan to enroll as a new undergraduate student in Summer 2023 or Fall 2023, you’ll also be eligible to be considered for most SIU scholarships based on your GPA.

All future undergraduate students from the U.S. are also eligible for in-state tuition rates.
