“For the admission requirements to ASU, we have similar but slightly different for in-state students versus out of state student. In-state students need to follow within a tough 25 percent of their high school graduating class. Have a 3.0 GPA as well as an SAT score of 1040 or higher or an ACT score for 22 or higher(how to score a 36 on your act.). As well as some academic courses that we want to have them complete while they’re in high school. The only difference for out of state students is the test scores. An out of state student needs to have an 1110 on their SAT first and also a 24 on their ACT. We do consider students who fall in the 26th to 50th percentile at their graduating class.
