The College of Wooster requires U.S. applicants to submit ACT or SAT scores as part of the Application for Admission. We have no preference between the two tests. Official test scores must be submitted through the testing agency or by a school official. To support access for all applicants and reduce submission barriers, Wooster will accept self-reported test scores directly from the Application or a score report PDF submitted by the applicant.

Upon enrollment, applicants choosing to self-report are required to submit official scores through the testing agency or from a school official for verification.  Any discrepancy between the self-reported scores and the verified scores could jeopardize a student’s enrollment and the Admission Committee has the right to rescind admission.

ACT (Code: 3260)

  • Best score is determined by combining the highest score received on each section from any combination of testing dates (i.e., superscoring).

SAT (Code: 1134)

  • Best score is determined by combining the highest score received on each section from any combination of testing dates (i.e., superscoring).
  • Starting in March 2016, the College Board began offering a new version of the SAT.  The test itself may have changed, but the way we use SAT scores in the admissions process will not — they will continue to be used as one piece of a much broader and holistic review process.
  • We will continue to accept scores from the old version of the SAT for the five years scores remain valid, and will superscore within both the old exam and the new, but will not superscore between the two versions. No matter what scores you send, we’ll be considering your best.
  • The SAT Essay is neither required nor recommended as part of your application credentials.
