Reporting Test Scores

To support access to all applicants and reduce submission barriers, Wooster will accept self-reported test scores directly from the application or a score report PDF submitted by the applicant. Applicants who choose to self-report their test scores will be required to verify their test scores, upon enrollment, by submitting official scores directly from the testing agency or a school official. Upon verification, any discrepancy between the self-reported scores and the verified scores could jeopardize a student’s enrollment.

ACT (Code: 3260)

Best score is determined by combining the highest score received on each section from any combination of testing dates (i.e. superscoring).

SAT (Code: 1134)

Best score is determined by combining the highest score received on each section from any combination of testing dates (i.e., superscoring).

We will continue to accept scores from the old version of the SAT for the five years scores remain valid, and will superscore within both the old exam and the new, but will not superscore between the two versions. No matter what scores you send, we’ll be considering your best.

The SAT Essay is neither required nor recommended as part of your application credentials.

TOEFL (Code: 1134)

The minimum recommended score for TOEFL (or equivalent) is 80 to be considered for admission to The 91勛圖厙.

Duolingo’s technology and format allows applicants to complete the test at any time or place, as long as they have web access. If you choose to submit Duolingo as your test score, email global@wooster.edu to let us know when your test has been completed.
