Nursing Scholars Program waives SAT/ACT requirement for 2021

Due to uncertainty surrounding SAT/ACT testing during the COVID-19 pandemic, Augusta University’s Nursing Scholars Program has adjusted its admission process for the fall 2021 cohort.

To be admitted, students must meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • A freshman index of 3000 or better
  • A high school GPA of 3.4 or better

This means students who apply and have not taken a standardized exam due to the COVID-19 pandemic could still be eligible for Nursing Scholars.

The Nursing Scholars Program is designed for rising high school seniors who are looking to start college the following fall. These students are encouraged to apply for early admissions to Augusta University.

The Nursing Scholars Program allows students who already know nursing is their passion to be admitted into the nursing program early (and bypass the competitive nursing school application) pending they meet and maintain the GPA requirement. Once in the program, Nursing Scholars obtain several privileges, including early class registration.

This means they would start at Augusta University as a pre-nursing major and matriculate into the program later.
