Test Scores (Optional)
Self-Reported or Official Reports

SAT code: 1841
ACT code: 1252

For the 2020-2021 application cycle, Notre Dame offers students the option to apply without consideration of their SAT or ACT scores. Learn more about Notre Dame’s test-optional pilot program. Students who rank Notre Dame can indicate whether they would like SAT and/or ACT scores included in the evaluation of their application on the Notre Dame QuestBridge Supplement.  

For students who would like to submit test scores, Notre Dame will accept self-reported test scores, scores reported on official transcripts, or scores verified through counselors. Official scores will be required for students who enroll at Notre Dame and have taken the SAT and/or ACT. If you submit multiple scores, Notre Dame will superscore the tests for our evaluation. This means the highest composite score and highest scores on each section will be considered, regardless of test date. Note that Notre Dame does not require the writing portion of the ACT or the SAT.

SAT Subject Test and/or AP Exam scores are not required, but are recommended in the areas of History, Foreign Language, and Science for applicants enrolled in a home-school program.
