Standardized Tests (Optional)

Standardized tests are optional for first-year applicants, please refer to our test-optional policy page for more information.

Performance on standardized tests like the SAT or ACT is considered, but you should be sure to familiarize yourself with the minimum requirements for admissibility as defined by the state of Massachusetts.  If you meet the minimum requirements, you are eligible to compete in our pool, though meeting the minimum does not guarantee admission. (All first-year applicants and all transfer applicants in their first year of college study after high school graduation must submit test scores.)  See recent class profiles by the numbers.
