The University System of Georgia waives test score requirements for Spring, Summer, and Fall 2021 semesters. Albany State University is working to help future Golden Rams by making an admissions decision based solely on their high school transcripts and academic GPA.

Freshman applying to Albany State University for the spring, summer and fall 2021 semesters can be admitted into our Bachelors degree programs without an ACT or SAT score if they have a high school GPA of at least a 2.5. Applicants with a high school GPA between 2.0 and 2.49 can be admitted into our access pathway programs.

Applicants are required to only submit their official high school transcript and complete an application to receive an admissions decision.

The University System of Georgia authorized this change. Prospective freshman must meet all other admission requirements, including satisfactory completion of the required high school curriculum and all other requested documentation. ASU admission counselors remain available to assist applicants and prospective students via phone 229-500-4358 and email
