  3. 18 ACT*** or 860 SAT (Critical Reading and Math), if taken before March 2016.  940 SAT (Evidence-Based Reading and Writing + Math), if taken in March 2016 or after.**

** Students who scored between 860 and 930 on the March 2016 or later SAT test will be granted an automatic SAT test score minimum exception to compete during the 2016-17 academic year.
