Montclair State values other criteria over SAT and ACT

Montclair State values other criteria over SAT and ACT
BY KRISTEN LAULETTI
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

The four-year New Jersey college has now made it optional for students to send in standardized test scores.

According to NorthJersey.com, the university has chosen to adopt a policy that won’t make the taking of SAT and ACT tests mandatory.

According to nj.com, this will make the university the “largest traditional four-year university” in the state that doesn’t require undergraduate applicants to send in these test scores.

According to philly.com, officials say that if students do decide to send their scores in with their application, then the scores “will be considered.” More weight, however, is being put on a student’s GPA as well as the courses the student took in high school.

Although officials say that the scores will be “considered” if they are added in with the application, philly.com reports that the university’s president, Susan A. Cole, said that the GPA of the student “is three times more likely than SAT scores to predict performance at Montclair State.”

According to nj.com, this new application process will apply starting with the incoming class of 2015 in the fall.

NorthJersey.com reports that Cole said, “As we choose each incoming class, our goal is to assure, to the greatest extent possible, that the students selected for admission are capable of succeeding in the university’s rigorous academic programs.”
