Test Optional FAQ

Answering Your Questions

Western New England University has adopted a test-optional alternative for freshman admission. Students applying for freshman admission can choose whether or not to submit ACT or SAT scores as part of the application.

We strongly recommend that you carefully consider your decision to apply with or without test scores. You will be asked to indicate whether or not you are applying test-optional on the Western New England University Electronic Undergraduate Application, or if you are applying using the Common Application, on the Western New England University Member Screen. Once you have submitted your application, you will be unable to change your decision at a later time. 

You must choose to apply either as test-optional or with your test scores. Students applying to Western New England University cannot submit more than one application. If a student submits more than one application, we will only recognize the first application received, and the admission decision will be based on that application alone.
