Arkansas has many excellent higher education options for students with differing levels of college preparation. The schools below range from those that accept nearly all students to some with relatively selective admissions. To see if your SAT scores are in line for admission to your favorite Arkansas colleges, the table below can help guide you. The scores in the table 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 Arkansas 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.

Always keep in mind that SAT scores are just one part of the application. At the more selective Arkansas colleges, the admissions officers will also want to see a strong academic record, a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation.

Note that the ACT is much more popular than the SAT in Arkansas, so a few colleges don't publish SAT scores for matriculated students.
