The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and two Subject tests of the College Entrance Examination Board are required of all candidates and should be taken as early as possible, but no later than January. If possible, Subject tests should be taken in current subjects. Students should offer two of the one-hour tests in the subjects of their choice.
In general, the College recommends, but does not require that one of the Subject tests be taken in a foreign language because a (re-centered) score of 690 or above satisfies part of an A.B. degree requirement (see The Academic Program for details on language exemption).
Candidates are responsible for registering with the College Entrance Examination Board for the tests. Information about the tests, test centers, fees and dates may be obtained by writing to the College Board, P.O. Box 592, Princeton, New Jersey 08542-0592 or on the College Board Web site at www.collegeboard.com.
Students may submit the ACT of the American College Testing Program in place of the SAT and Subject tests. All tests must be completed by the January test date.
An interview either at the College or with an alumna area representative is strongly recommended for all candidates. Interviews should be completed by the deadline of the plan under which the candidate is applying. Appointments for interviews and campus tours should be made in advance by writing or telephoning the Office of Admissions at (610) 526-5152.
