We understand that some students were not able to take standardized tests due to test cancellations related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our temporary test optional policy means applicants will choose whether or not to submit standardized test scores, such as the ACT or SAT, as part of their admission application.
Test optional is open to students who do not wish to share their scores and to students who were not able to take an exam on the scheduled testing dates. Although we are test optional, we encourage students who have been able to take the ACT or SAT to submit their scores.
Applicants choosing to not submit standardized tests will not be at a disadvantage nor will it negatively impact their application review.
