Due to the uncertainty of future test dates and availability of standardized tests, Rutgers will make submission of SAT and ACT test scores optional for students applying for spring or fall 2021 admission.

 
 
 

The charts below indicate the approximate SAT and ACT score ranges and grade-point averages for the middle 50% of students regularly admitted to Rutgers for fall 2019. Please note: "Middle 50%" means that 25% of regularly admitted students exceeded these ranges and 25% of regularly admitted students had scores and grade-point averages below these ranges. Rutgers conducts a holistic review of each student's application that takes into consideration many more factors than test scores and cumulative grade-point average.
