USI Dropping SAT, ACT requirement
The University of Southern Indiana is dropping the standardized testing requirement for undergraduate applicants.
The USI Board of Trustees approved a proposal to eliminate the requirement beginning with the 2021-2022 academic year.
In a release, the university said students applying for admission to USI would not need to submit SAT or ACT scores as part of the application process.
Certain programs and scholarships may still require SAT or ACT scores, and some students may still be requested to submit scores after review of their application.
In March, the University suspended the standardized test requirement for this Fall as part of its response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The university said the new proposal was developed independently of that decision.
