About the redesigned SAT:
Dalton State will accept the redesigned SAT beginning summer 2016. Redesigned scores will be converted to old scores for admission evaluation purposes. The two-digit Reading test score will be used to create a Critical Reading score and the Math section score will be used to create a Math score. Concordance information can be found via College Board.

SAT = Critical Reading 19, Math 360

ACT = English 14, Math 12

Minimum Freshman Index requirement

Freshman Index = 1830
SAT : Freshman Index = (Academic High School GPA x 500) + SAT Verbal/Critical Reading + SAT Math
ACT: Freshman Index = (Academic High School GPA x 500) + (ACT Composite x 42) + 88
