VANCOUVER, Wash. – Washington State University Vancouver will review freshman applications for admission and accept students without an SAT/ACT score for fall 2020.

The disruption caused by COVID-19 has resulted in many college placement tests being postponed or canceled. The SAT and ACT are widely accepted college placement exams that nearly four million high school students take annually. Providing a test score has traditionally been a condition for acceptance to WSU Vancouver.

Standardized tests do not necessarily predict an individual student’s success at a university or college. More and more institutions of higher education are giving prospective freshmen the option of omitting standardized test scores.

WSU Vancouver is still accepting applications for fall 2020. Prospective students are invited to apply by visiting
