Michigan Technological University has joined the growing list of colleges that will consider student applications without an ACT or SAT score.
Director of Admissions Allison Carter says students with a cumulative high school grade point average of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale now have the option to apply without submitting test results.
Many members of the high school class of 2020 have been unable to take the tests because of COVID-19 cancellations. In addition, many universities have recognized over the past several years that the standardized tests are a less-than-perfect way of qualifying incoming students.
Applicants may still elect to submit test scores to bolster their chances. Students who wish to be considered for merit-based scholarships are required to submit test scores.
