As colleges students get set to head back to school, Niagara University says next year applicants won’t have to submit their SAT or ACT scores in order to enroll.
Niagara joins a growing list of schools making these sorts of standardized tests optional.
The university’s president says high school grades and coursework will stand alone as determining factors for a student’s acceptance. A college essay and interview will also be considered.
According to U.S. News and World Reports, only about 48 percent of those that apply to Niagara get in.
