We realize the results of a standardized test don’t give us the full picture of a student’s future potential. Studies have shown that a more accurate measure of whether or not a student will be successful is by seeing the results of what they do on a daily basis. An applicant’s high school transcript shows us these results, not the test score achieved on one particular day.
Also, with the onset of COVID-19, we know many ACT and SAT test dates were cancelled. We don’t want a lack of test scores to deter anyone from applying for admission, and a transcript will give us plenty of information to determine an applicant’s ability to succeed in our academic environment.
