COL­LEGES AL­LOW AP­PLI­CANTS TO SELF-RE­PORT TESTS

The News-Times - - NEWS -

Yale and Quin­nip­iac uni­ver­si­ties in Con­necti­cut have joined a grow­ing list of schools that al­low ap­pli­cants to self-re­port SAT and ACT test scores, rather than get­ting those re­sults from the or­ga­ni­za­tions that ad­min­is­ter the en­trance ex­ams.

The pol­icy is de­signed to al­low stu­dents to ap­ply to mul­ti­ple schools with­out wor­ry­ing about hav­ing to pay fees to have those scores sent out. Quin­nip­iac, in Ham­den, an­nounced the change Thurs­day. Gre­gory Eich­horn, the school's vice pres­i­dent for ad­mis­sions, says once a stu­dent is ad­mit­ted, the univer­sity will ver­ify the scores with the Col­lege Board or ACT and can re­scind ad­mis­sion.

The Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion for Col­lege Ad­mis­sion Coun­sel­ing says more than 110 schools now al­low self-re­ported scores.
