Press Release


SAT Prep Courses Offered At Florida Gulf Coast University

The score students earn on their SAT can make a difference in whether they will be accepted or rejected at the college of their choice. Students who intend to pursue a college education, either in Florida or across the nation, need to take one standardized admission test such as the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and/or an American College Test (ACT) as a requirement for admission. Florida Gulf Coast University requires a SAT or ACT score for all lower level (under 60 hours) students. The academic Grade Point Average (GPA) determines the particular SAT score needed. To assist the students in obtaining a good score, FGCU is offering classes to assist students in preparation for the SAT.
