UNO recognizes that taking either the SAT or ACT at this time may be challenging. UNO will admit in state freshmen who apply on or before August 31, 2021 with a minimum 2.5+ GPA or greater on the Louisiana Core 4. For the Fall 2021, Summer 2021, and Spring 2021 terms, applicants with a 2.5+ core GPA who do not meet test score requirements, or do not submit test scores will be admitted based on core GPA alone. For any questions please contact the Privateer Enrollment Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
