Many schools in the University System of Georgia, such as Kennesaw State University, Georgia State University and Georgia Southern University, have suspended the SAT/ACT requirement due to the cancellation of the March, April and May tests. (This does NOT include University of Georgia or Georgia Tech, as they have already accepted their freshman class and already have a student wait list established.)
