Kentucky State University, an equal-opportunity educational institution, does not discriminate in its admission policies on the basis of race, color, sex, creed, disability, age, or national origin. Preference is given to the admission of Kentucky residents at the undergraduate level. However, applications from out- of-state residents are accepted for all curricula.
Kentucky State University requires that all incoming freshmen provide scores from either the ACT or the SAT-I. The ACT is preferable; however, either test will be accepted and the higher score will be used for admission. Scores on these tests are used for admission, and for placement in English, mathematics, and reading.
Admission standards are based on the quality of the high school grades as well as scores on either the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT-I). Students must also have completed specific Kentucky resident’s courses in their high school curriculum. (See Pre-College Curriculum later in this section.)
