Acknowledging the impacts of COVID-19 on student access to standardized testing, such as the ACT and SAT, the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education are providing for flexibility in public college and university admission requirements for the fall 2020 semester.

‚ÄúThe coronavirus pandemic is significantly impacting all levels of education in Oklahoma,‚ÄĚ said Chancellor Glen D. Johnson. ‚ÄúA lack of standardized test scores or the inability to schedule standardized testing should not deter students from pursuing higher education. We encourage prospective students to visit with campus officials for specific information about fall 2020 admission options.‚ÄĚ

While all students are encouraged to take the ACT or SAT if the tests are available, public colleges and universities will be authorized to use multiple measures of student performance, such as high school grade point average, high school and concurrent enrollment courses taken, and other criteria, to make admission and placement decisions for the fall 2020 semester. For more information, students should contact the admissions office at the college or university they would like to attend.
