King U Ends SAT/ACT Requirement

March 8, 2016

King University, in Tennessee, has ended its requirement that undergraduate applicants submit SAT or ACT scores. "Like many colleges and universities in the nation, we believe a high school GPA and careful review of academic preparation reflected in the student's transcript are better determiners of success at the college level. We maintain our commitment to high academic standards, and our data show that student success at King is more correlated with GPA than an ACT or SAT score," said a statement from Matt Roberts, vice president for academic affairs.
