On its Undergraduate Admissions web page, Ohio State University doesn't indicate that a particular minimum GPA or SAT score are required. The school does state that composite scores on either the ACT or SAT, with writing, are a key assessment factor. Additionally, prospective students who meet or exceed college prep requirements, or who attended a competitive high school and achieved a strong class rank, are given precedent in admission decisions.

OSU SAT Score Averages

College data website Parchment offers some insights into typical students admitted to Ohio State. For the class of 2010, scores in the mid-50th percentile range were 540 to 650 on the SAT verbal, 590 to 700 on math and 540 to 640 on writing. This means only 25 percent of students admitted had raw scores below the bottom of these ranges. Additionally, the site indicated the GPA for students at the 25th percentile level of all admitted students was 2.00.
