With 2014 looming just around the corner, many students are scrambling to get accepted into college. Many of these students were denied admission because of low test scores and not meeting other requirements of the colleges and universities to which they applied. The clock is ticking and opportunities to retake the SAT and ACT tests are dwindling. As we have discussed on this site repeatedly low GPAs and low test scores often keep students from being able to get into the colleges of their choice. When that happens, it’s time to look for alternative solutions.
There are numerous colleges and universities around the country that have extremely high, if not 100% acceptance rates. Many of them do not care what your grade point average was in high school and they do not require a minimum ACT or SAT score to get accepted into their institutions. Looking into these colleges is a good idea. The best approach is to see which colleges are the most likely to accept you and then factor in all the other variables such as location, cost, major, etc.
Here is a partial list of schools that had 100% acceptance rates in the past couple years. That means they didn’t refuse or deny anybody who applied to their institution. That makes them extremely likely to accept a very high percentage of applicants in 2014.

Just because you have low SAT scores or low ACT scores doesn’t mean you can’t get into college. In fact, you’ll probably be pleasantly surprised to know that many colleges and universities don’t even require an SAT or ACT test for admission. There are many reasons why these tests are optional but not mandatory. Below are a few of reasons.
The ACT and SAT, although good for measuring skills across the board, don’t necessarily serve a good purpose of measuring skills for specific types of schools such as technical schools, art schools, and music schools. So many of those types of institutions don’t require them.
Some colleges and universities feel like an unfair advantage is given to wealthy families who can afford prep classes for the SAT test and ACT test whereas less fortunate families can’t take the prep classes and consequently the students score lower on the tests.
Colleges or universities with strong religious affiliations often don’t require SAT and ACT scores either.
In summary, if you are a student with low test scores, don’t lose hope. Seek out “test-optional” colleges that don’t require high scores or don’t require the tests at all. Another option is to retake the SAT or ACT. Most people score considerably higher the second or third time around because they are more familiar with what to expect. The best option, if you can afford it, is to take prep classes for the SAT or ACT and then retake the exams. You are sure to score higher with more preparation. I hope this information has been helpful. Soon I hope to post a list of colleges that have test-optional admissions policies so please check back soon for updates.

Let’s face it, most high school students are average with average grade point averages, average SAT scores and average ACT scores. Not everybody can make the Dean’s List and flaunt a 4.0 GPA with high SAT and ACT scores to boot. It’s easy to find good college information for the smart kids and governor scholars of the world, but for the average Joe it’s sometimes difficult to find good information. The purpose of this blog is to focus on the average high school student and provide information about which colleges are the easiest to get into.
CUNY Staten Island has 100% acceptance rate and is one of the easiest colleges to get into in the United States.
Exactly what do I mean when I say, “easiest to get into”? By that, I mean which colleges will accept you as you are and let you enroll regardless of whether or not you have high marks. A recent report by US News and World Report named one hundred colleges with the highest acceptance rates, meaning the colleges that accepted the most people and turned away the fewest. According to their study, thirty-one colleges accepted everybody, one hundred percent of those who applied for enrollment. There were also many more that accepted ninety-nine percent of applicants for enrollment (almost everybody). With those colleges and universities instead of it being hard to get into them, it is actually hard not to get into them. They have certainly reversed the trend.
It’s important to note that some people have complained that their report is misleading and although those colleges do “accept” everybody some of them then make each applicant go through a screening process in which some of them are denied. However, more often than not, the report is pretty accurate. In this blog we will be showcasing colleges and universities with very high acceptance rates that you should be able to get into very easily.
We will be previewing many of these colleges and universities, but not all of them. Here is a list of 15 institutions that had 100% acceptance rates for the Fall Semester of 2011 in no particular order:
- Goddard College of Plainfield Vermont
