Misericordia University has announced that it will continue to conduct test-optional admission reviews for the first-year class entering in Fall 2022 in all academic programs.
Test optional admissions for first-year students was introduced for Fall 2021 admissions due to the cancellation of most SAT and ACT examination administration dates during the Spring of 2020 and the limited availability of testing sites and slots anticipated throughout the Fall nationally but especially in the Northeast.
“Challenges regarding access to standardize testing have continued into 2021, and we want to continue to respond. While we are still assessing whether test optional, in some form, will become a permanent policy at the university, we have seen more very strong students from the class of 2021 having the opportunity to access a Misericordia education in their chosen field, and we are excited to see those opportunities continue for the class of 2022,” said Glenn Bozinski, Vice President of Enrollment Management.
While the submission of standardized tests for the Fall 2022 class will be optional, students applying are still encouraged to submit standardized test scores if they have taken or intend to take tests. Standardized test scores may still play a role in the awarding of academic scholarships. However, students who choose not to submit scores will still be eligible for scholarship consideration.
