Standardized Testing

Testing is required, but it isn’t the ultimate factor in evaluating an application. We look at every applicant in the context of available opportunities and efforts. Testing, in conjunction with your academic record and recommendations, helps us better understand your academic preparation.

Required Testing

If you submit scores from both the SAT and ACT, we will look at your highest equivalent score. For the SAT, we take the highest section scores, regardless of the test dates. For the ACT, we take your highest single composite score (we do not superscore the ACT).

International Students Only: 

Recommended Testing

We recommend that you submit two SAT Subject Test scores to help us better understand your academic strengths. We encourage you take tests in the two subjects you like the most. If you submit more than two subject test scores, we will look at your two best scores. Alternately, if you do not submit subject test scores, it will not prevent your candidacy from receiving a full review by the Admissions Committee.
