Test Scores. What it means for you. 

Class of 2021

Test scores (ACT/SAT) for the graduating class of 2021 are optional for admission to Metropolitan State University of Denver.

In the spring of 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SAT and ACT exams were cancelled across the country, including for Colorado‚Äôs high school juniors. To address this issue, the General Assembly passed legislation that temporarily allows Colorado public institutions of higher education to determine whether to require national assessment test scores for admission for first-time freshman students who graduate from high school in 2021. The high school graduating class of 2021, the juniors who had their SAT exams cancelled, will have the option to submit SAT and/or ACT scores with their college applications. Applicants who choose not to submit a test score for admission will not be negatively impacted as institutions will be able to make informed decisions without the exams. H.B. 20-1407

Other Eligible Students

Other students who may qualify for admission without standardized test scores (ACT/SAT) include transfer students 20 years of age or older, GED recipients, and first-time college students 20 years of age or older. 

All Test Optional Students - If Admitted

If you do not have standardized test scores, you may need to take a placement test with the Office of Testing Services. 
If you have standardized test scores less than 5 years old (ACT or SAT), these scores can be helpful for advising purposes and placement into classes.
