Davidson is test-optional for the SAT or the ACT. Learn more about Davidon's test-optional policy.

Davidson 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. Request official scores from the College Board and/or ACT. Do NOT use the rush reporting service.

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

Home-schooled students are encouraged, although not required, to submit SAT and/or ACT scores and 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.
