Special Message to Applicants for the fall (August) 2021 and Spring (January 2022) semesters

Washington State University will not require SAT or ACT scores for applicants seeking to enter in 2021 or spring semester (January) 2022. This applies to all campuses in the WSU system. Accordingly, to treat applicants equitably in the admission process, SAT/ACT scores will not be used as a factor in admission decisions for the entering classes of 2021 or spring semester 2022. We look forward to your application to join the Coug family and are pleased to waive this requirement in order to facilitate your pursuit of higher education.
