More About Standardized Test Requirements
All applicants are required to submit all official results of either the SAT or ACT Test.* While we're interested in the general pattern of your scores, we give most weight to the highest score you've received on any of the exams.
For those applying to join the Fall 2021 first-year class and beyond, SAT Subject Tests are neither required nor recommended, and these scores won’t be considered in our admission review process.
*Carnegie Mellon University has adopted a test-optional policy for one year, removing the SAT/ACT standardized testing requirement for first-year Fall 2021 applicants.
