PC: University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa

Prospective first-year college students applying to the University of Hawaiʻi for the fall 2021 semester can now do so without submitting SAT or ACT scores.

The exemption applies only to incoming 2021-2022 undergraduate applicants, who may still submit test scores as part of their admissions application, if they choose to.

The College Board canceled the SAT exams scheduled in May and June, impacting many prospective UH Mānoa students scheduled to graduate from high school.

UH administrators say the exemption will help to attract an applicant pool of students amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

There are no changes at UH Hilo and UH West Oʻahu where standardized tests are not used as a principal criteria in the application process. College admissions tests are not required for admission to the UH Community Colleges.
