What score does a student need on the SAT in order to get into college?

There is no special score that a student needs in order to get into college. The required score varies from college to college. Here is a list of colleges and average SAT scores. In some cases an ACT score can be substituted for an SAT score. Also, the SAT score alone is not used to determine admission into a college. The student’s transcript will be reviewed prior to admission and other requirements such as a personal essay or resume may also be necessary.
