I would like to talk with a professor or student in my academic area of interest. How can I set that up?
Am I required to submit an SAT/ACT?
No. You can choose to submit your SAT or ACT exam scores (or both), but you also can apply without submitting scores under our test-optional plan. See more about applying.
Will changes in high school grading from A-F to a pass/fail system due to the COVID-19 affect my admission or scholarships?
No. We’ve always used a holistic review process to evaluate transcripts. We will start by looking at your high school’s metrics for academic rigor and performance. Then, for example, your high school guidance counselor can provide a School Report Form to help us understand your preparation. You also can let us know your circumstances. In fact, SU is represented on a list of 350 institutions nationwide confirming what admission offices value and expect – and don’t expect – from students during the pandemic.
Are you accepting AP exams for credit, given the new format?
The new testing format for Advanced Placement, CLEP and IB exams does not change our policy for accepting scores.
