Incoming Freshman Admission Requirements

High school students should apply for admission as early as possible during the senior year. An official copy of the high school transcript, showing grades at least through the junior year and ACT or SAT scores, should be sent by the high school directly to the UM Office of Admissions.

The University of Montevallo superscores the ACT and SAT for admission and scholarship consideration.  Superscoring at University of Montevallo means that we consider student’s highest ACT and SAT section (or subtest) scores regardless of test date. The super composite ACT score is calculated as the average of the best English, Reading, Math and Science subject scores. For the SAT, we will average your highest Evidence-Based Reading & Writing and highest Math scores.

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.
