2017-18 Catalog


Standardized Tests and Interviews

Bryn Mawr College provides undergraduate applicants the option of submitting standardized test scores.

  • SAT I or ACT scores are optional for US citizens and US permanent residents.
  • Non-US citizens and Non-US permanent residents are required to submit standardized test scores (SAT I or ACT) as well as either the TOEFL or IELTS if their primary language is not English and/or their language of instruction over the past four years has not been English.
  • Official scores should be sent from testing agencies such as the College Board (Bryn Mawr code: 2049) or the ACT (Bryn Mawr code: 3526). Information about the tests, test centers, fees, and dates may be obtained at www.collegeboard.com and www.actstudent.org.

Students submitting test scores must have them completed by the January test date.

Interview: An interview either at the College, with an alumna admissions representative, or via Skype or telephone 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, information sessions, and campus tours can be made in advance by completing the campus visit request form online or calling the Office of Admissions at (610) 526-5152.

The Office of Admissions is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, and is open on select Saturdays throughout the year. A student who is unable to visit the College can arrange an alumna or Skype interview by visiting the website as well.
