Most public (and private) colleges have gone test optional for the next admissions cycle. But the National Association for College Admission Counseling is concerned that more than 100 public institutions -- some part of systems -- have not. "In some cases, these institutions enroll tens of thousands of students, creating an outsized burden for all families whose students seek admission to them, " a NACAC statement said. "In this critical time, public colleges must be mindful of their founding purpose of serving students and families and recognize that lifting testing requirements in 2020-21 will be in the students’ best interest. Taking this action will strengthen the future of our nation’s public colleges."
