Which test scores should I submit?
An ACT/SAT score is not required for your 2021 application to the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. Learn more on our ACT/SAT score information page.
On your application, you will indicate whether you would like an ACT/SAT score considered in the review of your application. Once you submit your application, your decision is final and cannot be amended, with the exception for test access or cancellation circumstances. An applicant who originally indicated the intent to submit a test score, but can no longer take the exam and therefore can not complete their application, can request to change their original answer to this question by completing an amendment form.
International students must submit an English proficiency score. If you would like to use ACT or SAT scores as demonstration of your English proficiency, you must select "Yes" on the application when asked if you would like an ACT/SAT score considered during review of your application. Your ACT/SAT score will be reviewed as an academic factor and as your English proficiency requirement.
Why is the Testing page blank on my Common App PDF preview?
For all applicants, the Testing page on your Common App submission preview PDF will be blank with a small note: "There are no test scores to report." This blank page is intentional to ensure that our application reader team does not see scores from students who do not want an ACT/SAT score reviewed as part of their application.
If you selected "Yes" on your application to indicate that you'd like your ACT/SAT scores included in the review of your application, rest assured that we will still receive the ACT, SAT, or English proficiency scores that you self-reported on your Common App even though they don't appear in your Common App PDF.
