ACT scores and placement tests

We are temporarily waiving the requirement of an ACT/SAT score for the fall 20 term and will use a verification document completed by the high school for student placement into the Math and English courses.

Math requirements

In addition to the verification document completed by the high school for student placement, the student must satisfy the following requirements for admission into the Math course:  

MTH 134 Algebraic Reasoning and Modeling

B or better in HS Algebra I.

MTH 136

B or better in HS Algebra I and II.

MTH 137 Pre-Calculus 2

English requirements

ENG 110 Writing 1

Students must be a junior or senior in high school with a 3.0 or higher GPA on a 4.0 scale. For the FA2020 semester only, MSU is not requiring an ACT/SAT score, and the high school counselor will complete the DualCredit Verification Form through DualEnroll. Students can submit the ACT or SAT test score if that is available.

Note: An ACT English score of 18 or higher or SAT score of 471 or higher will meet the prerequisite for enrolling in ENG 110.
