Washington & Jefferson College does not require applicants to submit test scores (SAT or ACT) as a part of the admission process. Academic success at Washington & Jefferson College is driven by engagement with distinguished faculty, involvement in the classroom, diligent study habits, and a strong desire to excel. Testing is only one of many measures of potential academic success and often not the strongest. Students who choose the score-optional application alternative will be given full consideration, with no disadvantage for admission.
