Standardized Tests Now Optional for Admission to UNW

University of Northwestern no longer requires prospective students to take the ACT, SAT, or CLT.

We will continue to accept standardized tests. Results of the tests will be considered an additional data point in the student’s application for admission. We will maintain our holistic, thorough process that includes review of the student’s academics, spiritual commitment, and extracurricular involvement.

Our hope is that this change will allow more students access to Northwestern’s Christ-centered, excellent academic education.
