If you are currently a high school junior or senior, or have graduated from high school but have taken no college credits, you will apply to SVSU as a freshmen applicant.
Application for admission may be submitted after completion of your junior year in high school. Complete an online application and request your high school transcripts to be sent to Saginaw Valley State University. An official ACT or SAT score is required. Final admission is dependent on a review of final high school transcripts with a posted graduation date.
Decisions are typically made within four weeks after all application materials are received.

GED students applying for admission to SVSU must have their official GED score and ACT/SAT results sent to the Office of Admissions. If the student has not taken the ACT/SAT, he or she will be required to successfully complete SVSU's Basic Skills Exams in order to gain admission to the University.
Basic Skills tests are administered by the Testing Center at SVSU who sets the specific testing dates and times. Before you can take Basic Skills Testing, you must contact the Office of Admissions in order to receive proper permission to sign up for your test. To find out when these tests are scheduled and/or to register for a basic skills exam, contact the Testing Center at (989) 964-2820 or email@example.com.
