BlogCats icon Test Optional

We know many students have been unable to take an ACT or SAT exam due to complications surrounding COVID-19. Because of this, test scores are no longer required for scholarship consideration. Please note that other academic information, including cumulative GPA, is still required. Review the requirements for programs of interest carefully to ensure you have submitted everything required for consideration.
