Scores you need to get in

ACT Requirements

Admission data indicates that CSU regularly accepts students with ACTs of 16 and above. We estimate the school accepting minimum ACT composite scores around 14 in some instances. Prospective students submitting an ACT composite of 18 or higher should be in the upper half of applicants - and students with a 20 and above have very competitive chances. Scoring well on the ACT is very important as 96 percent of applicants submit ACT scores to Chicago State University.

Reporting indicates the school consistently takes SAT composite scores down to 1010 on a 1600 scale, below which admission should be considered a reach. We estimate some students could be accepted with SAT's as low as 940. The estimated average SAT composite for admitted freshman is 1080 out of 1600. 4 percent of applicants submit SAT scores to the school.
