Official Test Scores
SAT code: 5156
ACT code: 3088

Must complete one of the following standardized testing options and arrange to have official test score reports sent to Duke:

  • The test of the ACT, including the writing exam; OR
  • The College Board SAT, with two Subject Tests strongly recommended.
    • Students who submit the new SAT will also be required to submit the essay component.
    • The redesigned SAT: Students graduating from high school in 2018 may submit either the new or old SAT. Duke does not have a preference for either test, but if you choose to submit both, Duke will consider the stronger score as determined by concordance tables. 
    • For students who submit SAT scores, Duke will use the highest available Verbal/Critical Reading, Math and Writing/Essay scores, plus the two highest subject test scores regardless of when those tests were taken.
    • Students who submit the ACT are not required to submit SAT or SAT Subject Test scores.

Applicants to the Pratt School of Engineering who take the SAT are strongly recommended to take one SAT Subject Test in Mathematics (level 1 or level 2) and an additional subject test of their choice.

Applicants to the Trinity College of Arts & Sciences who take the SAT may take any two SAT Subject Tests. For complete information about the use of SAT Subject Test scores in foreign language placement at Duke, please visit Languages at Duke. If it is financially burdensome for you to release your test scores, then your counselor may submit your scores by fax or email. (See Contact Information below.)
