What is an acceptable score on the ACT/SAT?


To ensure college success, Gateway suggests a minimum ACT composite of 21 (or SAT equivalent). Of course, admission standards vary, and a lower score may be acceptable at the college or university of your choice. Check with colleges or scholarship foundations for their specific standards/requirements. An ACT composite score of 21 (or SAT equivalent) is the national average (i.e., 50th percentile). Those with a score of 29 or above may be candidates for full academic scholarships. The maximum score for the ACT is 36. For the SAT it is 2400 (3 x 800).
