A press release says the university will instead focus on a student's high school record, including extra curricular activities, as the primary factor in offering admission.
“Standardized test scores simply don’t provide much value for our counselors when determining an applicant’s academic preparation” said Assistant Vice President of Enrollment Management Andrew Palumbo.
Test scores that are submitted by applicants will be viewed as supplemental materials.
The University says that a “test-optional” admissions process does not mean the University is lowering admissions standards.
