    Weber State, UT El Paso, Toledo, and other great universities with guaranteed admission. I'll probably set up a list after my AP exams, but the ones I said are definitely the most popular.

    What about out-state students, are there colleges which have guarantee admission based on SAT scores or GPA for out-state students?

    Love this thread....I am helping a family to locate a college for their Senior after they had some very bad Intel on the whole process. International student, perfect English, International HS in English, GPA 2.6 with SAT 950's. Dyslexic with accommodations. I know, I know...trying to help them locate a LAC with excellent learning support system. Thinking that Ole Miss etc would be too big but maybe someon has some different views. Good news is they can handle full pay........Bring on the suggestions.

    The Iowa/Iowa State/Northern Iowa formula admissions also apply to OOS students. A student can apply on-line and get a decision within days. My son is now a freshman engineering student at ISU and loving it. He applied in July 2015 and got his acceptance within a week. Knowing that he had an admission in his pocket, it really took a lot of pressure off his senior year.

    Based on our experience and that of others, ISU's he merit scholarship estimator is also accurate.
    OOS tuition is also lower than most state universities at $21,583.

    @DoDEAMom18 Texas- El Paso is nearly-open enrollment (somehwere like 98%) and excepts all in the top half with somewhat reasonable SAT and/or ACT scores, definitely recommend for students who struggled somewhat in high school.

    The Open University (distance learning UK school) Undergrad degrees for U.S. students are more limited than the U.K., but you can get a study visa for masters/PhD programs.

    Wyoming's auto admission applies to OOS, and there is also guaranteed merit aid based on a chart (ACT/gpa)
