Standardized Test Scores
SAT code: 3957
ACT code: 1926

Wellesley requires either the SAT or the ACT. 

Request official scores from the College Board and/or ACT. Do NOT use the rush reporting service. Applicants who want to self-report required standardized test scores (either the SAT or ACT) may do so by sending their score report to applicant@wellesley.edu.

Although not required, students who want to self-report SAT Subject Tests, AP scores, or IB exam results may do so in their QuestBridge applications. 

Note: If the cost of sending test scores from the College Board/ACT would present a financial burden, you may have your guidance/college counselor email a copy of your score report to applicant@wellesley.edu. In addition, Wellesley will also accept test scores that are reported on an official high school transcript.

Optional Supplement

If you would like faculty members to provide the Board of Admission with a formal review of your visual art, music, or theatre work, please submit an Arts Supplement. Wellesley College only accepts Arts Supplements via SlideRoom. QuestBridge Match Finalists should note that the deadline date for submission is November 1. Please see the Wellesley College Art Supplement Guideline for instructions and further details.
