Despite its large landmass, Arizona does not have a lot of four-year non-profit colleges and universities. Arizona State and University of Arizona, however, are both a couple of the larger public universities in the country. You'll also find a few options for smaller colleges. To see if your SAT scores are in line for admission to colleges in Arizona, the table below can help guide you. Admissions standards vary significantly from Dine, a tribal college with open admissions, to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott where most applicants have above-average math scores. No Arizona colleges have overly selective admissions. The scores in the table below are for the middle 50% of enrolled students. If your scores fall within or above these ranges, you're on target for admission to one of these Arizona colleges. If your scores are slightly below the range presented in the table, don't lose all hope -- remember that 25% of enrolled students have SAT scores below those listed.
Also remember that SAT scores are just one part of the application. These Arizona colleges will also want to see a strong academic record, and some will be looking for a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation.
