Adjustments to TCSG Admission Criteria

Adjustments to TCSG Admission Criteria following the Cancelation of SAT and ACT Testing In light of the decision made by the College Board and ACT to suspend the availability of testing during the COVID-19 virus pandemic, prospective students applying for admission in fall 2020 will not be required to submit an ACT or SAT score.

A student who has scores is still free to submit them, and an institution should feel free to utilize those scores to decide admission in the established way. 

Prospective first year students must meet all other admission requirements, including satisfactory completion of the Required High School Curriculum and all other requested documentation. But, in the absence of ACT/SAT scores, institutions will make admissions eligibility decisions based on the materials that the student has submitted, utilizing a GPA threshold that is at least the following sector minimum rather than the usual Freshman Index (FI) criteria.
