Signatories to NACAC Test Optional Statement
The COVID-19 pandemic has created uncertainty among students and families about nearly all aspects of the college admission process, including the role of standardized testing. Due to the cancellation of SAT and ACT testing dates, more than 1,450 US colleges and universities announced they are moving to a test-optional policy, and more will surely follow.
By going test-optional, institutions are making a definitive statement that they will not need test scores to make admission decisions this year. Despite the change in policies, high school students and their parents are asking,
“Does test optional really mean test optional?”
The answer, simply put, is: YES.
The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) asks its members with test-optional policies in place to affirm that they will not penalize students for the absence of a standardized test score. We strongly endorse a student-centered, holistic approach to admission that will not disadvantage any student without a test score.
If you agree, please sign on!
We seek one signatory per institution—a senior leader in admission or enrollment. We plan to publicize the list of signatories so it can inform students and parents actions.
I agree with this statement and would like my name added to the public list of endorsers.
