WHICH COLLEGES IN USA DO NOT REQUIRE SAT?

Updated: Mar 30, 2023



The COVID-19 health catastrophe has thrown the world into chaos, posing enormous challenges. Given the global health crisis, several universities have eliminated the SAT/ACT requirement for prospective students. As part of the test-optional policy (allows applicants to choose whether or not to report their SAT/ACT scores to a school), students who believe that their academic credibility is represented by their SAT/ACT results, their scores will continue to be examined as a representation of their academic preparation in universities. To get you started, here's a list of some of the best colleges in the United States that don't require SAT scores:
