Test Scores (Optional) 
Self-Reported or Official Reports

SAT code: 5187
ACT code: 0810

Emory University is test optional, meaning students can apply without submitting their SAT or ACT score(s) in the 2020-2021 academic year. Learn more about Emory’s test-optional policy. Students who rank Emory University can indicate which, if any, scores they would like considered in Emory’s review of their application. 

For students who would like to submit test scores, Emory considers scores as an indication of academic preparation and they will be reviewed. Emory accepts self-reported test scores. Students can send their scores to admission@emory.edu  or upload them to their Emory applicant portal after applying.

If self-reported scores are included in a student’s application, official scores will be required if that student is admitted and chooses to enroll, typically in the summer before enrolling. 

SAT II Subject exams are not required, but students are welcome to submit them with their application. Self-reported scores are accepted.

Please select “Early Decision 1” as your admission application type. This does not mean you are applying Early Decision 1, but it allows the Office of Financial Aid to process your financial aid paperwork quickly and in time for the Match.

If your parents are divorced or separated:

  • Each parent will need to complete their own CSS Profile application. Your parents should not share their CollegeBoard log-in credentials with each other so as to keep their financial information private.
  • If you do not have any contact with your non-custodial parent, then you may submit a request to waive the requirement of their financial information. Please download the Non-Custodial Parent Waiver Petition and submit it to IDOC (see below).

Once you complete the CSS Profile, you will be given instructions on how to submit your parents’ federal tax returns through the CollegeBoard IDOC service. Please include all schedules, attachments, W-2 forms and other earnings and/or year-end benefit statements. Please include personal and business returns if applicable.

Your non-custodial parent must also submit copies of their 2019 federal tax return with all schedules, attachments, W-2 forms and other earnings and/or year-end benefit statements.

Do not submit directly to Emory as they will not be accepted or posted.
