Wesleyan is entirely test-optional and does not require the submission of standardized tests in the admissions process. If you decide to rank Wesleyan you will be able to submit your testing preferences indicating which, if any, scores you would like used in your application. If you decide to submit scores, designate the combination of test results you feel best represents your academic achievement and potential. This can range from a full set of SATs and SAT Subject Tests, an ACT, SAT Subject Test Results, and AP exam scores, to a combination of results from different evaluations, or no test results at all. Learn more about Wesleyan's test-optional policy.

If submitting test scores, request official scores from the College Board and/or ACT. Do NOT use the rush reporting service.

Wesleyan also accepts copies of official score reports sent by your high school.
