Carroll University is joining many other colleges and universities in announcing a temporary change to its admission application process.
Due to the disruption to teaching and testing caused by COVID-19, Carroll will be “test optional” for most fall 2021 applicants. Test optional means students do not have to submit their SAT or ACT scores as part of their application.
Students who decide to apply without submitting their test scores will not be required to submit any additional documentation of their academic experiences or preparation. In those cases, the admission office will conduct a thorough review of the student’s transcript to determine eligibility for admission and scholarships.
There are some cases in which standardized test scores will still be necessary. This includes students applying to Carroll’s direct admit nursing program, direct admit physical therapy program or for students who were home schooled during high school.
This policy will be in effect for fall 2021. Carroll will conduct rigorous internal analysis to determine whether to continue the policy for future terms.
