SEVEN Georgia universities reinstate ACT/SAT requirement!

Beginning in fall 2026, the University System of Georgia (USG) will be requiring ACT/SAT scores to be submitted for all applications to the following 7 schools.

Beginning in fall 2026, the University System of Georgia (USG) will be requiring ACT/SAT scores to be submitted for all applications to the following 7 schools:University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Georgia State University, Georgia College & State University, Augusta University, Kennesaw State University, and Georgia Southern University.

Notably, these universities will not only be requiring students to submit ACT/SAT scores but also requiring a minimum ACT/SAT score. ACT/SAT requirements were previously reinstated for the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Georgia College and State University, so fall 2024 applicants must plan to submit ACT/SAT scores for those three schools.  

The USG is following in the footsteps of other universities reinstating ACT/SAT requirements such as Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, and MIT. However, USG, along with the University of Tennessee system, are the first major university systems to reverse their test-optional policies and reinstate ACT/SAT admissions requirements—a major sign that American universities are doing away with COVID-era test-optional policies and once again emphasizing the importance of ACT/SAT scores.
