SAT and ACT Test Optional Policy

In an effort to accommodate students who have been (or will be) unable to take the SAT and/or ACT exams, HBU is waiving the standardized test score requirement for current applicants, as well as those applying for Summer or Fall 2021. Applicants who choose to opt out of submitting a standardized test score will be considered holistically for admission to HBU, with the majority of the weight on the high school transcript. However, all applicants will still be considered for scholarships whether they submit a test score or not.

International applicants will still be required to meet English proficiency requirements as listed under HBU’s international admissions policy. Our intention with this temporary test-optional policy is to make the application process as seamless and stress-free as possible in light of challenges caused by the COVID-19 crisis.
