Standardized Testing Policy

Test Optional Policy

Gettysburg College has a long history of being a test optional institution. This year, with the interruption to standardized testing due to COVID-19, our commitment to reviewing students' applications without standardized testing is more important than ever. To apply without submitting your test scores, please indicate so on the Gettysburg College member screen on the Common Application.

Self-reported Scores

We accept self-reported scores on the Common Application. Once a student enrolls at Gettysburg College, if they submitted self-reported scores during the application process, we will require official scores to be sent from the testing agency or a school official for verification.
