I took the old version of the SAT/ACT. Do I need to take the new version to apply to Washington University?
Beginning with the Class of 2011, students applying as freshmen for admission in fall 2008, Washington University will accept only scores from the new versions of the SAT and ACT.
We accept the following standardized tests:
SAT Test (includes a writing test)
ACT Test (with the optional writing section)
ACT Test (without the writing section)
We do not require the writing test if you submit ACT Scores.
Test results from any of your high school years are acceptable, though we encourage senior-year testing. Primary consideration will be given to the highest individual scores, whenever they occurred.
