Official Test Scores

ACT code: 3086

Davidson requires the SAT or the ACT.

Request official scores from the College Board and/or ACT. Do NOT use the rush reporting service. Davidson also accepts self-reported test scores, which may be submitted by either the student or high school counselor at the time of application. If admitted, students must submit official scores.

For students submitting the SAT or ACT, the writing portion will not be considered as part of application review.

In addition to the SAT or ACT test results, home-schooled students are encouraged, although not required, to submit results of at least two SAT Subject or Advanced Placement exams. These exams may allow home-schooled students to demonstrate their various academic abilities in ways that can provide additional context on a home-school application.

The TOEFL or IELTS is required for any applicant whose first language is not English.
