All ACES admission validity studies require that you examine a HSGPA value along with SAT scores. Many institutions choose to include students’ HSGPAs in the file they submit to ACES. Sometimes, institutions do not have students’ HSGPAs on file, and this is not a problem. Instead, you can choose to use the “ACES-supplied” HSGPA taken from the student’s SAT Questionnaire data. You will indicate this choice when you begin the ACES study design process online.
