NCAA PRESIDENT: IT'S TIME TO ELIMINATE MINIMUM TEST SCORES
Published May 28, 1998
NCAA President Cedric Dempsey said yesterday that he "believes the NCAA should no longer require athletes to achieve a minimum standardized test score in order to receive major college athletic scholarships and compete as freshmen," according to Mark Asher of the WASHINGTON POST. On Tuesday, Dempsey said that he "would recommend" lowering the minimum acceptable test score, which has been in place since '83. Yesterday, he "clarified" his remarks, saying he favors "eliminating the current standardized test score cutoff." Currently, the minimum test score on the SAT is 820 and on the ACT is 68. Athletes must also have at least a 2.5 GPA to receive an athletic scholarship, and to practice and play as freshmen (WASHINGTON POST, 5/28).
