Support Test-Optional Admissions
You can help encourage even more colleges and universities to treat applicants as “More Than a Score.” Your financial support will allow FairTest to promote test-optional policies at more conferences of admissions policy-makers, reach out to additional higher education leaders and distribute copies of this list to counselors and student advocacy groups. Thank you!
NOTE: This list includes bachelor degree granting institutions that do not require recent U.S. high school graduates applying to start classes in fall 2022 to submit ACT/SAT results. As the end notes indicate, some schools only exempt students who meet minimum grade or class rank criteria; others use test scores solely for placement purposes. Please check with the school’s admissions office for details
International applicants should refer to this list compiled by Sarah Loring de Garcia.
- Chronology of schools adopting test-optional policies since 2005
