I never took the ACT’s and I want this answered so I can decide whether to take it or not. And I don’t want to transfer this year so COVID test optional stuff would be out of the window. I plan on transferring once my second year of college is over. I am at a 4-year college, not a community college.
Check their websites. Most have extended test optional for at least another year for freshman applicants but transfer application requirements can differ.
Historically SAT/ACT scores were required. Some schools, like Brown, offered an exemption to community college applicants but also stated the more successful CC applicants did submit scores.
If you think you have the academic potential to be admitted, let alone succeed at a T20, you ought to have the skills to figure out the requirements.
