What if I already took the SAT/ACT? Can I still submit my scores? 

Yes, of course! You can submit your test scores in order to be considered for our Extraordinary Academic Scholarships.

Since I don't need to submit test scores, what DO I need to submit to apply to Brockport? 

We will need three things from you:
  1. Apply through the Common App or SUNY App
  2. Official High School transcript
  3. At least one letter of recommendation 

Without a test score, what will make my application stand out?

Our Admissions Advisors will review your application holistically. We will look at everything in your application - including your high school courses, involvement (such as community service, clubs, etc.), letter(s) of recommendation, and college essay.

Will certain programs still require the SAT/ACT? 

A majority of our programs are test optional. The Nursing Program is an example of a program that is test flexible. If students want to ensure they’re offered Direct Entry to our Nursing Program, they will still need the SAT or ACT. However, if they don’t submit test scores, we’ll still consider them for Direct Entry based on a very holistic review.

There may be some exceptions, but please contact us if you are interested in Nursing or the 3+3 DPT Program with SUNY Upstate Medical.

Can I still receive scholarships without the SAT or ACT? 

Brockport has a number of scholarships available to first-year students. All of our merit-based Extraordinary Academic Scholarships, including the Honors College Prometheus Scholarship, are test optional. Test optional applicants must still meet the GPA requirements while our Admissions Committee will review each individual application holistically.
