Beginning with the 2020-21 admissions cycle, all applicants who are not recruited athletes and choose to report test scores under Penn's test-optional policy have the option of self-reporting their SAT, ACT, and SAT Subject Test scores. These students must submit official score reports prior to enrollment. To self-report your scores, use the testing section of the Common Application, Coalition Application, or QuestBridge Application. If you plan on taking advantage of superscoring, we recommend that you self-report all sections of each test sitting. If you are self-reporting sections from multiple test dates then you must submit official reports from each sitting prior to enrollment. If you choose to self-report your tests scores, then please be sure your self-reporting is accurate. Penn reserves the right to rescind admission in the case of applicant misrepresentation including discrepancies between self-reported and official test scores. For more information, please see our testing page.
Recruited athletes will still be able to decide if they would like to take advantage of Penn's test-optional policy. Those who choose to opt in and report their SAT, ACT, or SAT Subject Tests will need to provide official test scores as part of the application process and will not be able to self-report their scores.
English-language proficiency test results do not fall under the self-reported testing policy and must be sent through official agencies to be considered with your application.
