UPDATE - University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg Test Optional for Fall 2020 & Fall 2021
Due to constraints and pressures that students and school systems face as a result of the COVID19 virus, effective immediately, the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg will be ACT and SAT test-optional for the Fall 2020 and Fall 2021 admissions cycles. Please note that the Nursing and Engineering programs will still require the submission of a score.
As a result of this pilot, students applying for admission to the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg for the fall of 2020 or 2021 will have the option to include (or not) their SAT or ACT scores as part of the application materials. As a reminder, all applicants to the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg already receive a comprehensive, individual review. Thus, in the absence of a test score, the committee will determine admissibility by relying more heavily on factors such as the strength of a student's academic coursework, their grade trends and senior year curriculum choices, their performance in advanced courses (i.e. honors, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, post-secondary coursework), short answer/essay questions, extracurricular activities, and anything else that a student chooses to submit in order to demonstrate their academic potential.
It’s important to keep in mind that, when included, SAT or ACT test scores can still factor into scholarship eligibility decisions. As such, while SAT or ACT test scores are optional for admission purposes, sending a score can positively affect the awarding of merit-based scholarships.
