No tests required for admission to Marymount

Beginning with the freshman class of fall 2016, Marymount University in Arlington no longer will require SAT or ACT scores from high school applicants who have at least a 3.0 grade point average.

The change "will allow for a more holistic view of a student's academic achievement and attract a broader pool of qualified, interested students who have a strong record of academic success in high school," said Francesca Reed, associate vice president for enrollment management.

Standardized test scores still will be required from those applying for certain programs, including honors, physical therapy, Clare Booth Luce, and forensic and legal psychology scholars. Home-schooled applicants also will be required to submit test scores.
