St. Thomas University waives ACT/SAT requirement for fall 2020
Thursday, April 2, 2020
St. Thomas University has waived the requirement that high school students must submit SAT and ACT test scores when they apply to attend the school in the fall semester.
The coronavirus epidemic has led to the closing of testing sites across the country, the school said.
Students who have yet to take the exams may still be considered for admission to the university that is in Miami Gardens.
Applicants who have already taken either test have the option of submitting their scores.
The waiver applies to both domestic and international students.
“COVID-19 has greatly affected all of our lives, in particular many high school seniors who are dealing with the idea that their college career may be impacted by the virus,” St. Thomas University President David A. Armstrong said in a statement on the school’s website.
“We at St. Thomas understand the obstacles they are facing, want to [assure] them that they will still able to pursue their degree and that circumstances out of their control won’t be held against them.”
