ANGOLA, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – Traditional undergraduate students at Trine University in Angola will continue to not be required to submit ACT and SAT scores to seek admission through the fall 2023. The university first made the tests optional last year as the COVID-19 pandemic caused standardized tests to be canceled. 

Trine says prospective students that are able to schedule a test may submit the scores, but the scores will only be considered as part of their overall record. 

“Scheduling a test opportunity is still an obstacle for many high school students, so we are continuing our test-optional policy as a way to remove that barrier,” said Kim Bennett, vice president for enrollment management at Trine. “Instead, students can decide what they want to submit to support their admission application.”

The university said students who wish to be considered for direct entry programs or merit-based scholarships may still need to submit standardized test scores.
