What SAT/ACT test scores do I need?

The test score requirements vary between Divisions I and II.

In Division II, the test score requirements are the same for every student, regardless of GPA. To meet Division II requirements, you must achieve at least an 820 on the SAT or a sum score of 68 on the ACT.

In Division I, a sliding scale is used based on core course GPA. The higher your GPA, the lower your test scores need to be to qualify. Higher test scores will also allow for a lower minimum gpa. The Test Score Index for the Division I is listed below.

Note: Test scores will be calculated using the math and verbal subsections of the SAT and the sum of the Math, Science, English and Reading subsections of the ACT. The writing component of the ACT or SAT will not be used to determine your qualifier status.However, more and more schools are requiring the writing portion of the test for admission, so it is a good idea to take that portion each time you take the test.

NOTE: Test scores must be reported directly from either ACT or SAT using code 9999. The NCAA no longer accepts test scores reported by your high school.

Also please note that it is common for student/athletes to take the ACT or the SAT more than once in order to get their desired score.
