The ACT Score Needed to Get Into Ole Miss

by Susan Revermann, Demand Media Google

    Founded in 1848, the University of Mississippi has grown into the state’s largest university and a world-class public research university. If you want to join the student ranks of Ole Miss, you will have to have the educational background, GPA and minimum standardized test score. Providing a qualifying ACT score with your application gets you one step closer to your educational goal.

    Getting the Scores

    You must fulfill one of the following criteria to apply to Ole Miss. If you completed the school's recommended College Preparatory Curriculum with a 3.2 GPA or higher, you don’t need a minimum ACT score to apply. If you received a 2.5 or higher GPA while taking the CPC or your class rank is in the top 50 percent, you must have a composite ACT score of 16 or higher. When you have a 2.0 or higher GPA with the CPC, you should have an 18 on your ACT. If you meet the certification requirements for the National Collegiate Athletic Association, you don’t need a specific ACT score. Nonresidents of Mississippi must have a 2.5 or higher GPA with the CPC or equivalent coursework and a composite score of 20 or higher on the ACT. Transfer students don’t need a minimum ACT score, but they do need a 2.0 or higher GPA in college courses.
