Can high SAT and or ACT scores get someone in-state tuition at state colleges?
I have a question which pertains to in-state tuition at state colleges. Can high SAT (1400, 1450+) scores and high ACT scores (31+), help an individual obtain in-state tuition at state colleges? I understand that every state is different but for example I have read on Quora, Reddit and some other sites and I have watched some videos on YouTube that claim that Texas grants in-state tuition to anyone that can get at $1000 in scholarships. If this is true would it include the University of Texas at Austin? I'm interested in some state schools in Texas and North Carolina and a few other states. Does anyone have any experience in getting in-state tuition rates because of high test scores?8 replies
