Testing and Score Choice

Standardized Testing

All students must submit either the SAT or the ACT with Writing. First-year applicants are strongly urged to provide the results of two SAT Subject Tests (formerly called the SAT II tests). Students whose first language is not English or who have attended an English-speaking school for fewer than two years are required to provide evidence of their English proficiency by submitting the results of the TOEFL or the IELTS.

The last recommended test dates for Early Action applicants are the October dates.  The last recommended test dates for Regular Decision applicants are the December dates.

Our ETS code is 5820. Our ACT code is 4412. 

Score Choice

It has been the Office of Admission’s long-standing policy to consider the best scores submitted by applicants.  We hope you will submit all of your SAT scores knowing that we will look at the best critical reading, best math, and best writing scores (commonly known as “super scoring”).
