Scores you need to get in

What are the SAT and ACT requirements for students to be admitted to Southwestern University and what score do you need to get in? The tables below describe the SAT and ACT test score percentile profile of the Fall 2015 starting class.

ACT Requirements

Admission data indicates that SU regularly accepts students with ACTs of 23 and above. We estimate the school accepting minimum ACT composite scores around 20 in some instances. Prospective students submitting an ACT composite of 26 or higher should be in the upper half of applicants - and students with a 29 and above have very competitive chances. Scoring well on the ACT is very important as 61 percent of applicants submit ACT scores to Southwestern University.

SAT Requirements (New SAT)

Reporting indicates the school consistently takes SAT composite scores down to 1120 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 1015. The estimated average SAT composite for admitted freshman is 1225 out of 1600. A competitive SAT score is critical as 75 percent of applicants submit SAT scores to the school. Note: SAT scores presented on this page have been adjusted upwards per the College Board's concordance tables for test takers after March 2016.
