General requirements

  • Each school has different requirements for standardized testing. Most schools require the SAT or ACT, and many also require SAT subject tests.
  • University of Saint Joseph hasn't explicitly named a policy on SAT/ACT requirements, but because it's published average SAT or ACT scores (we'll cover this next), it's likely test flexible. Typically, these schools say, "if you feel your SAT or ACT score represents you well as a student, submit them. Otherwise, don't."
  • Despite this policy, the truth is that most students still take the SAT or ACT, and most applicants to University of Saint Joseph will submit their scores.
