A-State To Utilize ACT “Superscores”

115

For the upcoming academic year, Arkansas State University will utilize the “superscore” method for ACT scores for the majority of incoming student admissions and institutional scholarships, Chancellor Kelly Damphousse announced Thursday.

“Using the superscore for determining a student’s ACT puts Arkansas State in line with peer universities and it is the common practice across the state of Arkansas,” Damphousse said.  “We had been denying access to students based on a strict interpretation of ACT scores that our peers have not been using.  We believe this will create greater access to our university.”

The “superscore” is the composition of a student’s best subscores, regardless of test date on the ACT.  Most of Arkansas State’s institutional scholarships have an ACT component, and accepting the superscore for the majority of these scholarships will provide additional support to students and their families who choose to attend A-State.   MORE
