Full admission to Mississippi State University will be granted to high school graduates who complete the required College Preparatory Curriculum (CPC) along with one of the following:
- A minimum 2.0 grade-point average on the CPC
- Satisfy the National Collegiate Athletic Association standards for student-athletes who are full or partial qualifiers under Division I guidelines.
Test-Optional: Students who choose not to participate in ACT or SAT testing will be reviewed for admissibility. This review will involve consideration of high school performance, placement testing, special interests, and skills as well as other non-cognitive factors.
If a test score is submitted, MSU will superscore (highest ACT or SAT subject test scores from the same test type when scores from more than one test date are submitted.) A combination of ACT and SAT subtest scores cannot be combined to calculate a superscore.
Following the University’s grading option for the spring 2020 semester, grades of S, P, or U as listed on college and high school transcripts will not be calculated in your grade point average for consideration of admission and scholarships. Grades of A-F will be calculated as normal.
