Beloit Goes Test-Optional in Admissions

August 11, 2014

Beloit College announced Friday that it is ending (for domestic applicants) a requirement that students submit SAT or ACT scores. A statement from the vice president for enrollment, Robert Mirabile, said: "Given the extremely competitive marketplace in which we recruit students, it is important for us to carefully weigh the costs and benefits of each part of our application. From this perspective, I am concerned that the standardized test requirement adds little unique value to our selection process.  Indeed, the requirement can, in some cases, inhibit access to Beloit among capable students who would greatly contribute to and benefit from the college.”
