Slippery Rock University will evaluate applications based on high school performance.  This applies to students applying for the Fall 2020 term with a 3.20 GPA or higher and includes both those students who were planning on taking the SAT/ACT for the first time and those looking to retest.  Test scores will be accepted for applicants who were able to sit for a previous exam date, but for all others the high school transcript, including grades and rigor will be evaluated in lieu of test scores.
