National Examinations

SAT, ACT, and IB results are not the only way to satisfy your standardized testing requirement. You can also take a regional or national exam. We recognize dozens from around the world — and the list is getting longer. Contact our admissions office at to learn if we recognize a test not on the following list.

You're also welcome to submit official documentation of national or international academic accomplishments that may support your application.

Exam Not Available?

If a national college entrance exam is not an option in your country, you can fill out a Standardized Testing Requirement Exemption Request Form. You’ll be asked why you need an exemption and will have to provide additional credentials to support your admissions application.
