Test-Blind Admission Policy
Due to COVID-19's significant disruption on students' ability to take the ACT or SAT
exam, SXU announced a test-blind admission policy for freshmen applying for the fall
2021 semester, which has since been extended to applicants for the spring 2022 and
fall 2022 semesters. This means that ACT or SAT scores will not be required for fall
2021, spring 2022, or fall 2022 applicants and will not be used in admission decisions
or for calculating merit scholarships, with some exceptions.
For additional details, we encourage you to visit our No Test Required Admission Policy page.
