Test Optional Policy

Beginning with applicants for the Fall 2018 term, the University of Hartford will move to a test optional policy as part of our application process. Applicants who believe that their SAT or ACT scores are not representative of their academic achievements and potential are welcome to apply as test optional and should indicate so on their application. Our test optional policy is consistent with the goal of reviewing each application for admission in a holistic manner.

There are however certain circumstances where submitting official test scores is required.

SAT or ACT scores are required if:

  1. »  You are homeschooled or attend a high school that provides only descriptive report cards rather than letter or number grades.
  2. »  You wish to be considered for our Presidents, Regents, or National Honors Academic Scholarships as well as the First Robotics Scholarship offered through the College of Engineering, Technology & Architecture.

In all cases the Office of Admission will pay close attention to your academic achievements, coursework, community service, and extracurricular activities. It is our goal to enroll students that share in our values of integrity, curiosity, creativity, excellence, responsibility, and accomplishment.
