Test Optional Note

For the Spring 2021, Summer 2021, and Fall 2021 terms, Clayton State University has implemented a Test Optional policy for students applying for Freshman, Freshman Transfer (less than 30 semester/45 quarter hours of transferable college credit), and Dual Enrollment admission. These applicants are not required to submit SAT/ACT/Accuplacer scores and will be reviewed for admission on high school and collegiate coursework and grade point averages from official transcripts.

Test scores are required for Spring 2022 and beyond.
