MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Middle Georgia campuses are adjusting admissions policies amid the coronavirus outbreak and the cancellation of ACT/SAT testing dates.

Fort Valley State University has decided ACT and SAT scores are no longer required for 2020 summer and fall applicants. The policy was recently authorized by the University System of Georgia (USG) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Students who do not submit test scores must meet the first-year index and required high school curriculum. The change is only applicable for the Spring 2020 and Fall 2020 terms.
