SAT and ACT scores no longer required for Summer and Fall KSU admittance


Temporary adjustment of admission requirements implemented in response to COVID-19

KENNESAW, Ga. (Mar 23, 2020) — Students meeting Kennesaw State’s GPA admissions standards who are applying to the summer or fall 2020 semesters will be able to do so without submitting SAT or ACT test scores.

The decision comes following guidance by the University System of Georgia in response to the cancellation of spring SAT and ACT testing dates. Prospective first-year students must meet all other admission requirements, including satisfactory completion of the Required High School Curriculum and all other requested documentation.

“This is a time for implementing flexible solutions to ensure that incoming college students are not harmed by the inability to take SAT/ACT tests,” said KSU President Pamela Whitten. “We are confident that our incoming summer and fall classes will be well prepared to meet the academic opportunities available at Kennesaw State.”

Enrollment counselors and advisors are available via email at to answer questions.
