The questionnaire will ask you to identify up to three Duke majors that interest you, and to reflect on your academic interests and your interest in Duke. The specific questions can be found at https://admissions.duke.edu/application/instructions.html#essay-essay-short-essay-prompts.

Standardized Test Scores
SAT code: 5156
ACT code: 3088

Must complete one of the following standardized testing options and report scores to Duke:

  • ACT, writing exam optional; OR
  • SAT, with essay component optional and two Subject Tests strongly recommended
    • 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, two SAT Subject Tests are strongly recommended. Students who have taken the test multiple times may choose which scores to send to Duke. Duke will use the highest available scores in each section, plus the two highest Subject Test scores, regardless of the date those tests were taken.
    • Students who submit the ACT are not required to submit SAT or SAT Subject Test scores.
