Test-Optional Admission


You Have Options

Utah State University has made the decision to temporarily suspend the ACT/SAT test score requirement for admission to USU’s Logan and Statewide Campuses. This would make the University 'test optional' for Spring 2022, Summer 2022, and Fall 2022 semesters.

Test Optional

‘Test optional’ means it is not mandatory for students to submit their ACT/SAT test scores as part of their admission application. ACT/SAT test scores will still be considered if submitted.   

ACT/SAT test scores are recommended for academic merit scholarships which are guaranteed if students meet the published parameters. Students who are unable to take the ACT/SAT, or choose not to, may request a personal comprehensive scholarship review (CSR) for scholarship consideration. The review will consider benchmarks such as grade point average (GPA), high school course rigor, and other criteria. Learn more at usu.edu/admissions/scholarships. The submission deadline for CSR is February 1, 2022.

What to Expect

Student will be evaluated for admission solely based on their GPA.
