Here you can find all the schools that have become test-optional, either temporarily or permanently, in advance of the 2020-2021 application cycle.

In recent weeks, more than a dozen colleges and universities in the United States have stated that they will be effectively "test-optional" for applicants in the high school Class of 2021 (and, in some cases, beyond). Given the prominent role SAT scores play in college admissions, these changes have radically altered the landscape. What does that mean for you?
