Undergraduate Admissions


Incoming Freshman Admission Requirements

The University of Montevallo has waived the ACT/SAT test score requirement for admission and scholarships for students through fall 2022. Students who do not submit ACT/SAT scores will not be disadvantaged in the application or scholarship review process.

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, should be sent by the high school directly to the UM Office of Admissions.

OPTIONAL FOR 2021 & 2022: 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 for any 2021 or 2022 term, incoming freshmen must meet the 3.0 cumulative GPA requirement. Freshman applicants with less than a 3.0 GPA will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
