The College of Wooster is test-optional, providing students the opportunity to present application material that accurately reflects their diverse academic talents and potential. Students can submit either the SAT or the ACT if they feel their results best represent their academic potential. The Admission Committee makes no assumptions as to why some students choose to submit scores while others don’t.

All applicants are given equal consideration in the admission process and are eligible for Wooster’s merit-based scholarships. Test scores will not be used in consideration for merit-based scholarships.

To support access and reduce submission barriers for applicants who choose to submit their scores, 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.

A Note Regarding the Effects of the Pandemic

Wooster recognizes that it’s become incredibly difficult for many students to register and take the SAT or ACT. If you have any questions or concerns about our testing guidelines and wish to share more about your individual circumstances, please contact your Admissions Counselor or email us at  admissions@wooster.edu. We are committed to remaining flexible and will provide appropriate next steps regarding your application.

ACT (Code: 3260) and SAT (Code: 1134)

Submission of test scores is optional. Any test scores submitted are superscored (we will combine the highest score received on each section from any combination of testing dates).
