We are a Test Optional College

Benedictine College is offering a temporary test optional application plan because of the cancellations of the ACT and SAT test dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Benedictine College accepts the CLT and applicants are encouraged to consider this test option.

Applicants with above a 2.75 GPA will be eligible to apply as a test optional candidate. This is available for students who intended to take the ACT or SAT for the first time or for those who intended to take an entrance exam to boost their existing score.  We will use the highest grade point average reported on the high school transcript.

Applicants with a 2.74 or below are eligible to apply as a test optional candidate. In addition to the high school transcript, these candidates will be required to interview with a faculty team.

For more details, please contact Becca Caudle, Director of Undergraduate Admission.
