College Admission Use of National Test Scores

On May 25, 2021, Governor Polis signed House Bill 21-1067 into law.  Effective immediately, this bill makes it optional for Colorado’s public four-year colleges and universities to require or not require national test scores in the admission process. In other words, our state institutions can make admission decisions without considering SAT or ACT test scores. It is up to the applicant if they want their test score to be considered in the admission process. This practice is often referred to as “test-optional”. All public four-year colleges and universities have confirmed that they will be test-optional!
