The most important consideration for determining eligibility for freshman admissions at Augusta State University is the Freshman Index (FI). The FI is determined by a formula calculating the high school average with SAT/ACT scores.
Formula for the SAT Scores:
FI= SAT critical reading+ SAT math+ (High School GPA x 500)
Formula for the ACT Scores:
FI= (ACT Composite x 42) + (High School GPAx500) + 88
*Note: Students with verbal SAT scores less than 500 or ACT English less than 21 will take the English and Reading portions of the COMPASS Examination. All students bound by freshmen admissions requirements must take the COMPASS Examination for placement in math.
