New Test-Optional Admission Policy

The University of Evansville became a “test optional” school beginning with the class entering in fall 2018. New applicants to UE will have the choice to opt out of submitting standardized test scores from the SAT and ACT for admission consideration. Education students, however, are required to demonstrate their basic skills competency prior to formal Admission to Teacher Education at UE, typically completed their sophomore year. Education majors can choose to demonstrate this competence with Indiana CORE Academic Skills Assessment (CASA) rather than the ACT or SAT. Those who opt out of submitting ACT or SAT test scores on their application will be required to submit an essay in addition to information about their academic achievements as high school students.
