UWG Admission Requirements:

These requirements are valid through May 12, 2017. 

  • Application for admission
  • Official copy of your high school transcripts
  • Official copy of your SAT and/or ACT scores
  • Combined (Critical Reading and Math) SAT of 970 (or ACT 20)
  • SAT Critical Reading 430 (or ACT English 17)

SAT Conversion: 

Students taking the new SAT must present a minimum score of 24 on the Reading test and a minimum score of 22.5 on the Math test. In addition, students taking the new SAT must present scores that meet or exceed the equivalent of 970 (combined Critical Reading + Math) on the old SAT. This determination will be made by converting a student's new SAT Reading test score to the comparable old SAT Critical Reading section score and converting the new SAT Math test score (or equivalent new SAT Math section score) to the comparable old SAT Math section score. The sum of those two scores must meet or exceed the old SAT 970 minimum.
