Testing Requirements

SUNY has temporarily suspended SAT/ACT testing requirements for students applying for admission to a SUNY bachelor’s degree-granting college for the spring 2021, fall 2021, and spring 2022 terms. You may now decide whether or not to include your scores for admission consideration at each college to which you apply.

If you believe your scores are an accurate representation of your ability, SUNY colleges can consider them along with all other materials in your application file. If you think your scores do not represent your abilities, SUNY colleges can holistically evaluate your application without considering them. Please consult your school counselor or advisor if you are unsure about what to do.

In some instances, however, test scores may still be required. Admission to select programs, consideration for some merit scholarships, and NCAA eligibility for Division I student-athletes may require test scores. International students, who are non-native English speakers and whose primary language of instruction in high school was not English, are required to demonstrate English proficiency by submitting scores from SAT, ACT, TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE.

You will have an opportunity to check “Yes” or “No” when you apply for admission. Although you cannot change your preference online once your application has been submitted, you may contact the Office of Admissions at the colleges to which you have applied to request adjustments.
