Freshmen Requirements

UM holds a list of freshman admission criteria based upon a combination of high school grade point average and ACT or SAT scores to ensure that our incoming students are ready for our engaging curriculum.

In order to be admitted to the University of Montevallo, incoming freshmen must meet the 2.5 cumulative GPA requirement and have a minimum composite ACT score of 20 or a 1030 SAT (Evidence-Based Reading and Writing + Math). Students with an ACT of 18 or 19 or a 960 SAT (Evidence-Based Reading and Writing + Math) may be considered for regular admission on the basis of a scale of increasing grade point average.

Students taking AP, IB, or dual enrollment courses should have test scores submitted to the Office of Admissions or official transcripts from the university where the dual enrollment courses were completed.
