Test Optional Admissions

Worried about those SAT or ACT scores? Don’t be! We’re test-optional, which means you can choose whether or not to submit those scores. It’s all about giving you flexibility in the application process.

We accept students from across the board. If you don’t love your GPA, don’t worry. We take other factors into consideration like extra curriculars, student circumstances, and much more. Contact an Admissions counselor to review your transcripts and discuss your options. We don’t want your grades to get between you and your dream school!
