The ACT and SAT are equally popular in Indiana, and all of the schools listed here will accept either exam. If there's an Indiana college you'd like to learn about that isn't in the table above, click on the school in my complete list of admission profiles to get the ACT data. And to see a profile of the schools listed here, just click on their name in the table. You'll find great information about admissions, enrollment, majors, graduation rates, and financial aid.

Keep in mind that ACT scores are just one part of the application. The admissions officers in Indiana will also want to see a strong academic record, a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation. Sometimes, an applicant with high scores but an otherwise weak application will not get into a school. And, at the same time, an applicant with less-than-average scores but a strong application, good writing skills, and demonstrated interested could be accepted.

So make sure the rest of your application is strong, even if your scores are not.
