Tulane to Go Test Optional for One Year (2020-21)

Submitting test scores for the SAT or ACT will be an optional — not required — part of the admission process for students applying this fall for a spot in Tulane University’s 2021 entering class. This is a one-year policy in response to the multiple test cancellations due to COVID-19 making it difficult for students to retake tests.

Letter from the Dean of Admission

With the great uncertainty the world is facing amid Coronavirus (COVID-19), we understand that high school juniors are feeling additional stress around the college admission process, particularly as it pertains to standardized testing due to test cancelations. To respond to the needs of our prospective students in a fair and equitable manner, Tulane University has decided to go test optional for students applying in the fall of 2020 for the fall 2021 entering class (Class of 2025).

Whether or not an applicant should submit standardized test scores with their application is a decision that should be entirely left up to the applicant. If the applicant feels that their SAT or ACT score accurately reflects their academic aptitude, we welcome them to submit their scores. If an applicant feels that their score does not reflect their academic aptitude, there will be no penalty for this. Keep in mind that, even as we evaluate your application to determine your readiness for Tulane academics, we put equal weight on the components of your application that speak to your interest, passions, and engagements that may or may not be academically-related.
