Two-year schools may drop SAT requirement

Albany- Georgia is one of only two systems in the nation that still requires admission tests for students at two-year schools, but the state Board of Regents is reviewing whether to do away with that and replace it with a minimum grade point average requirement.

Admissions officials at Darton College say even if the board drops the SAT requirement, students should still take it.

"Even if the SAT is eliminated, if you've taken the SAT or you take it, you can still use those scores to place out of placement testing," says Terri Carroll.

Darton officials say dropping testing requirements may be a good move, but raising the minimum GPA a student must have to enroll could be problematic for students wanting to enroll in two-year schools.
