Hood College, in Maryland, and Regis College, in Massachusetts, have both announced that they are ending requirements that all applicants submit the SAT or ACT. Hood suggests that those who do not wish to submit test scores have a minimum high school grade point average of 3.25 and schedule an on-campus interview. Regis says that it will still require the SAT or ACT for applicants to its undergraduate nursing program, and for home-schooled applicants.
