Salve makes test scores optional for its applications

Posted 9/13/10

NEWPORT – Salve Regina University is making SAT and ACT standardized test scores optional for students applying for admission.

The decision comes as Salve Regina welcomes the largest freshman class in its history. The new policy will apply to all majors except nursing and education, as licensing in both fields requires graduates to pass standardized exams.

In adopting the policy, Salve Regina joins a growing number of the nation’s top liberal arts institutions that have made standardized tests optional because of concerns about their ability to predict academic success.

“Our research shows that the best predictor of academic success at Salve Regina is strong performance in a rigorous college preparatory program,” said Laura McPhie Oliveira, Salve vice president for enrollment. •
