Depends on what the school requires/wants. Check with the school(s) you want to apply to and find out what the "baseline" score is. Schools will often use a "lowest acceptable" score to weed out applicants who score below their minimum. It has been many since I took the SAT's, so check with the schools or peers get up to the minute info. The SAT's are simply an indicator of how well the student can handle college level work, coming out of high school. For graduate students (like me), the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) does the same thing for students who want to go on after a bachelor's degree. Most schools look at the whole picture for applicants (both undergrad and graduate.) So schools will be looking at your high school GPA, extra cirricular activities, work experiences, and the personal essay. Your SAT scores are just one part of the package. Many peers of mine "back in the day" stressed out to a great degree about the SAT's (I guess some things never change). However, lower SAT scores may be offset by a well written personal essay, a personal interview that impresses, and good high school grades. In other words, treat the SAT's as important, but not the ONLY thing that is going to get you in. Hope this helped.

If you have a high-school or general-equivalency diploma, you will not be denied a seat, notwithstanding your SAT score. Depending on how you score on the placement exams, you may have to take remedial courses, which are not for credit.

The score you need to reach depends on your own expectations and the college you want to get into. Competitive colleges may want you to score over 2200 while less competitive schools may not mind you getting below 2000.
