Admission Tests

The American College Testing Assessment (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is required for admission. The University recommends that the test be taken during the spring of the junior year or the fall of the senior year of high school, but no later than April of the senior year. Information about testing centers and dates may be obtained from the high school guidance office or the University’s Admissions Office. An official score report should be sent directly from ACT or SAT to the University by listing MVNU when taking the test or by completing an additional assessment report form; a score strip report mailed by ACT or SAT and affixed on the high school transcript is also acceptable. We will also accept any ACT/SAT score on a high school transcript as long as it is typed and includes a composite score, all subscores and an associated date the test was taken. This must be received by the Admissions Office in a sealed envelope or faxed, but either must come directly from the high school. Only ACT/SAT scores received by June 1 are considered for academic scholarship for incoming freshmen.
