In light of the uncertainty surrounding the timeline of and access to the ACT or SAT, Western Michigan University has adopted a test-optional policy for students applying for 2021 entry terms, and beyond. This applies to both admission and Office of Admissions scholarship consideration.
Definition of “test optional”: Students may report/submit ACT or SAT test scores if they wish, but it is not required. If a student does wish to have their test score used in the admission process, they can self-report their scores on the admission application.
Applicants who do wish test scores to be used in the admission process should report/submit scores from all test dates. Doing so will allow WMU to use your highest subscores from any test date to superscore your total (SAT) or composite (ACT) score.
