  • At least 1,400 four-year colleges will not require the SAT or ACT next year, according to FairTest: the National Center for Fair and Open Testing.
  • Many colleges went test optional or test blind this year amid the pandemic.
  • FairTest estimates that 1,400 is 60 percent of the nation's four-year colleges.
  • “Last year’s sharp spike of admissions exam suspensions was not a one-time phenomenon,” said FairTest executive director Bob Schaeffer.
  • “Schools that waived ACT/SAT score requirements during the pandemic generally saw more applicants, better academically qualified academics and more diversity of all sorts.
