Score Optional Policy
You are not required to submit test scores (SAT or ACT) as a part of the Washington & Jefferson College admission process. We believe engagement with distinguished faculty, involvement in the classroom, diligent study habits, and a strong desire to excel drive academic success at Washington & Jefferson College. Testing is only one of many measures of potential academic success and often not the strongest. If you choose the score-optional application alternative, your application receives full consideration, with no disadvantage for admission.
