The colleges are ranked by their position on our best colleges ranking.

It's equally important to have the GPA that the college is expecting for incoming students.

Is a 30 on the ACT a good score?

Yes, a score of 30 is excellent. It places you in the top 93rd percentile nationally out of the 2 million students taking the ACT entrance exam this year. The score indicates you've done a significantly above above average job answering the questions on the English, Math, Reading and Science sections of the test.

For comparison purposes, a 30 on the ACT converts to a 1370 on the SAT based on the College Board / ACT concordance. Not all colleges report both SAT and ACT score admission data so you should check our comparable listings for both standardized tests to find academically similar schools.
