What standardized tests are required for QuestBridge applicants?QuestBridge
Testing, in conjunction with the other pieces of your application, helps us better understand your academic preparation. We strongly advise students to focus on the many holistic elements of the application that showcase academic excellence and their personal narrative. Dartmouth has practiced holistic admissions review for more than a century, and that ancient ideal of the whole person continues to guide our application review process.
If you submit multiple scores from the SAT or ACT, we will accept superscored testing, i.e. your highest section scores in either test, regardless of the test dates.
You may self-report your scores on your application, and we will consider these scores until we receive your official scores.
The fastest and most direct way to submit official scores is to request the testing agency report your scores to Dartmouth. You are also welcome to ask your school counselor to submit your scores to Dartmouth with your transcript or by emailing them to email@example.com.
Class of 2028 applicants, please note: if you indicated that you wish your scores to be considered in our review of your candidacy for admission, we will require that you submit your official scores before you enroll.
