Fencing - Academic Index

If the SAT Subject tests are no longer required of students and now many colleges are making SAT optional, how does this affect the AI for a recruited athlete? Would the AI be based solely on GPA, class rank and class size?

Prior to test optional admissions, if a student athlete didn’t have SAT subject tests, the SAT/ACT was 2/3 of the AI calculation (GPA the other 1/3).

Now, if the student-athlete applies TO, it’s not possible to calculate an AI.

Note that some coaches may still require test scores of athletic recruits, even at test optional schools.
