First-year students may apply for admission to Lynn University without submitting official SAT or ACT test scores. While the Office of Admission recognizes that standardized tests accurately measure aptitude for many students, tests of this nature may not always reflect a student’s true potential. The university welcomes motivated students who will commit to becoming an active participant in their education and who will thrive in a highly individualized learning environment. Students who choose to apply test optional will be evaluated holistically with consideration given to their high school grade point average, strength of curriculum, progression of courses taken, letters of recommendation, and through an interview process if deemed necessary. First-year students who are homeschooled must submit standardized test scores.
