“This is yet another way Georgia Southern is adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic,” the university said Saturday in a news release.
Kennesaw State University is also making the change, which will apply to the summer and fall semesters.
KSU President Pamela Whitten said in a press release Monday: “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. We are confident that our incoming summer and fall classes will be well prepared to meet the academic opportunities available at Kennesaw State.”
Students must have a high school grade-point average exceeding a 2.0 applying to the system’s nine state colleges and nine state universities, the memo said.
A student who has ACT or SAT scores is still free to submit them and the college or university should feel free to utilize those scores to decide admission, the memo says.
