Optional Exams: SAT and ACT

The SAT and ACT exams are not required for international students. If you have taken either exam, however, we encourage you to submit scores as additional evidence of your academic performance.

Optional Test Scores for International Students

The SAT and ACT exams are not required for international students. If you have taken either exam, however, we encourage you to submit scores as additional evidence of your academic performance. If you are from a native English speaking country, you are strongly encouraged to submit SAT or ACT scores since English proficiency scores are not required for you. SAT or ACT scores can have a positive impact on the review of your application.

Use of SAT or ACT scores to meet the University’s English proficiency requirement. Although the SAT and ACT are not required for international student applicants, the University will consider the English proficiency requirement satisfied if you have achieved academic success in English writing or literature courses and have a minimum SAT critical reading score of 550 or an ACT English score of 22. Official SAT or ACT scores must be sent directly from the testing organization. School copies or student copies will not be accepted to satisfy this requirement.
