The charts below indicate the approximate SAT and ACT score ranges and grade-point averages for the middle 50% of students regularly admitted to Rutgers for fall 2016. Please note: "Middle 50%" means that 25% of regularly admitted students exceeded these ranges and 25% of regularly admitted students had scores and grade-point averages below these ranges. Rutgers conducts a holistic review of each student's application that takes into consideration many more factors than test scores and cumulative grade-point average.
