The Best Western Colleges for a 30 on the ACT


What Western colleges can I get into with an ACT score of 30?

With a 30 on the ACT, these are the Western colleges you should have a chance to get into.

CollegeSimply analyzed the most recent published freshman class ACT scores for all Western colleges and found 68 schools where a 30 places you within or slightly outside the middle fifty percent of admitted students. The colleges are ranked by their position on our best colleges ranking and thus represent the better schools you may be able to get into and those which have historically accepted a 30.

Is a 30 on the ACT a good score? Yes, it's very good. It places you in the top 93rd percentile nationally out of the 2 million students taking the ACT this year.

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.
