Test Scores Not Required

Important Admissions Updates

Columbus State University will admit students applying for the Summer and Fall 2020 semesters without an ACT or SAT score if they have a sufficiently high GPA. In response to COVID-19, the College Board and ACT have suspended all upcoming ACT and SAT testing dates, which could prevent some students from completing their admissions applications.

Due to the suspension of all in-person GRE and GMAT testing opportunities, Columbus State University has also made the decision that graduate students applying for the Summer and Fall 2020 semesters will be considered for admission without GRE/GMAT test scores.

Due to the suspension of in-person testing for many of the USG-approved assessments for evaluating English language proficiency, CSU has opted to accept the Duolingo assessment for Summer and Fall 2020 applicants.
