Admissions Advice

Will colleges continue going test-optional (for ACT and SAT) for students graduating high school in 2022?

I'm a junior in high school right now and will graduate in 2022, so I am wondering if colleges will continue going test-optional when 2022 comes around.

I would say the answer is yes because most colleges have already announced this already including all 8 Ivys and most elite colleges.

Most colleges have gone test blind or test optional through the 2021-2022 admissions process. If you want to make sure you can always look up the school's policy on their admissions website.
