NAVY


SAT/ACT TESTS

Qualifying scores on Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Test (ACT)

Applicants must have BOTH the minimum individual scores in the SAT/ACT Math and Verbal and a minimum Combined (Math plus Verbal) score in order to be eligible to apply for the scholarship.

For Navy and Nurse scholarship eligibility, applicants must meet the requirements of minimum individual score and combined score. Tests can be super scored, meaning some combination of two of the SAME TYPE of test can be used to achieve the minimum required combined score and will be utilized in determining the highest individual test scores.

For example :

    Applicant took ACT in May and achieved 30 in Math and 18 in English. A second ACT was taken in October resulting in a 20 in Math and a 27 in English. The superscore would be the highest individual test score from each category - 30 Math (May) and 27 English (October) resulting in a combined score of 57.

The SAT would function in the same manner.

SAT:
540 Math;  550 Verbal Evidence Based Reading and Writing
AND
1200 Combined (Math plus Evidence Based Reading and Writing)
ACT:

21 Math; 22 English
AND
47 Combined (Math plus English)

Applicants with the minimum individual Math and Verbal scores but not the combined score, and who respond positively to the MSISR interest question in the application, are eligible to apply and will be considered on the MSISR selection board (Navy Option only). See the link below for more information on the MSISR scholarship.
