SAT Optional

Standardized test scores are optional for SCU applications for two years due to the coronavirus pandemic.

To assist students facing unprecedented challenges amid COVID-19, SCU is adopting a two-year “test-optional” admissions policy for first-year and transfer students beginning in the winter 2021 term.
