Students in Class
TCU’s test-optional admission policy has been extended through 2025. Students graduating high school in the next two years can decide whether to submit results from the SAT or ACT as part of their TCU application, which opens on August 1.

"Test-optional admission supports our mission to review each applicant holistically, looking beyond test scores at what students have achieved in their schools and communities," said Dean of Admission Heath Einstein.

Within the past three years, TCU has admitted thousands of applicants and issued millions of scholarship dollars to students without test scores. In fact, 46% of Horned Frogs who deposited for fall 2023 did not use their test scores.

And under TCU's “Do No Harm” policy, there is no downside to submitting test scores. This policy applies to both admission and scholarship. We also superscore, meaning we'll consider your highest section scores across multiple sittings or test dates.

TCU's application for admission opens August 1 for students looking to start college in 2024. Students and families can request information to learn more about TCU and receive guidance through the admission process.
