Application Testing Requirements

We believe in a holistic admissions process that includes a review of academic and professional background, references, interviews and standardized testing. Please review your future program’s page to identify the required tests for your application and use the resources below as you prepare your best application packet.

Teacher preparation application students, please refer to the Teacher Preparation page testing requirements.

Please provide information about the tests you have taken or plan to take. You may add or update this information at any time prior to submission. Once you have submitted, you will be able to add additional tests as well as update the ones marked 'plan to take', but you will not be able to update or delete completed tests.

If you have taken the same test more than once, and your highest section scores are from different dates, enter the full information from each testing date. Scroll to the bottom to add additional results for the same test.
