Missouri State Eases Admission for High School Students

It’s going to be easier than ever to become a Bear.

Missouri State University announced they will be changing their freshman admission policy to make it easier for students to attend the school. The University will now accept ACT or SAT superscores and adopt a test-optional policy for students carrying a 3.25 grade point average or higher in high school.

“It’s our goal to make Missouri State as open and accessible as possible for anyone who wants to pursue a college degree,” President Clif Smart said in a statement. “We expect this policy change will help move the needle in that direction.”

The ACT or SAT “superscore” takes a student’s highest score in each section of the test and adds them together, regardless if those high scores came on the same test day. The ACT and SAT have endorsed the use of the practice, as many students take the tests more than one time.

Students who maintain a grade point average of 3.25 or higher will not be required to take a standardized test for admission. More than 800 colleges and universities in the nation have implemented this change long-term, with an additional 400 waiving their requirements for ACT or SAT scores for the upcoming year because of COVID-19 concerns.
