Depends on how old you are, and what you can score on the SAT.
If you have a good SAT score you will probably be able to, even if not at the world's greatest school.
If you have yet to drop out and get a GED and that's why you're asking, no, you really can't, it's always much better to have the real thing, I've known more than one individual with a GED to go back to high school much later in life, to get that diploma.
If you dropped out a long time ago, it's much easier than if you just did a month/year/3/5 ago. College will want your HS transcript, and to see that you can finish what you start and do the work to make good grades....... But SAT is the really important part unless you're trying to go to a super snobby university of the type that wants your facebook and twitter along with your list of published works for undergrad applications.
