Remember the old days when you had to worry about how high your SAT was or how well you did on the ACT? Fret no more. The Charleston Gazette reports at least six schools in the Mountain State are “test blind.” It’s part of a growing trend around the country, and one report says that at 800 schools around the country no longer consider standardized test scores in considering admission.
The six schools in West Virginia are:
- Fairmont State University
- Glenville State College
- Bluefield State College
- Salem International University
HERE’S THE CATCH: The state’s Higher Education Policy Commission does require that all colleges not requiring test scores require a minimum 3.0 high school GPA. There’s always a catch.
