Is your admission review test optional, and under what conditions?
No, not required*. Students have the same access to everything: admission, automatic merit scholarships, special scholarships, Honors, direct admission to nursing and engineering.
*There are two important notes to this policy: homeschooled students with less than 30 semester or 45 quarter college credits must submit an SAT or ACT and international students are required to submit a test score to demonstrate English proficiency through TOEFL, IELTS, Duolingo, iTEP, SAT, or ACT.
If I opt into test-optional consideration, will I be able to change that decision later?
Yes, please email our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 509-313-6572.
We require a more official score report than just self-reported scores. Students can either request them to be sent from the testing companies or log in to their online score report and take a screenshot that includes their scores, the date of the test, and their name and email that screenshot to email@example.com.
If I have scores to report, how do you wish me to report them?
How does it benefit a student to disclose multiple score reports?
Even though AP tests are designed for placement, how do I report them to admission offices?
We do not consider at AP test scores as a part of the admission process. If you enroll at Gonzaga, please send official score reports to the Office of Admission so we may award any earned credit. Click here for our AP testing policy.
If I have an SAT / ACT score, should I choose to have that score used in my application?
An SAT or ACT score is just one part of Gonzaga’s holistic review process. Learn more about holistic review on our Admission Requirements page.
If the test score is a good representation of you as a student, then you may wish to submit test scores. The middle 50% range of scores for students who enrolled in fall 2021 are 28-32 on the ACT and 1280-1400 on the SAT.
