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.
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.
