Mount Union Adopts Test Optional Policy for Fall 2020

March 30, 2020

ALLIANCE, Ohio — The University of Mount Union has approved a test optional policy for students applying for admission to the University for the 2020 Fall Semester, temporarily suspending its requirement that applicants submit an ACT or SAT score.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented challenge for high school seniors making their college choice for fall 2020. To better serve these students, Mount Union will admit students based upon the University’s established high school grade point average requirements for admission and a holistic review of each student’s high school record.

“Mount Union recognized that many students would have been disadvantaged by the inability to take or re-take ACT and SAT tests, visit campuses, or attend the exploration events that are so key to making their college choice decision,” said Dr. Jeffrey Breese, vice president for academic affairs and provost at Mount Union.

The University is still encouraging students who have ACT or SAT scores to continue to submit them, as it helps identify which first-year courses will best serve them in pursuit of their major of choice.
