Seattle universities scale back ACT, SAT requirements

The Seattle Post Intelligencer reports universities in that city are scaling back the ACT and SAT tests as part of the admissions process.

Other schools in the region have begun de-emphasizing standardized testing in their admissions process as well. Beginning in fall 20201, Seattle University will join a growing list of of schools that are test optional in an effort to “build a more inclusive admissions process.” The administration was considering this action before the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted testing schedules.

The test-optional policy will not only apply to undergraduates taking the SAT and ACT, but also graduate students with GRE and GMAT requirements.
