University to grant admission without SAT or ACT scores

Posted: Updated:

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- Some students will be able to sit out the SAT's. Virginia's Old Dominion University is starting a pilot program that will grant admission without SAT or ACT scores.

The test-optional policy is being launched in the fall. Students with a GPA of at least 3.3 won't have to take the standardized tests.

University officials tell The Virginian-Pilot the idea is to widen the pool of applicants.

School officials note students from higher income families are more likely to take test prep classes and receive higher scores.
