List of Colleges that “Superscore” the ACT

by Karen Miller on July 20th, 2011

Schools that “superscore” the ACT, as told to me by each school’s admission department.

Boston College*
Boston University*
Hobart and William Smith
University of Miami
University of Pittsburgh
University of Pennsylvania*
Wake Forest University
Washington University, St. Louis

*These schools count the ACT in lieu of the SAT I and SAT II Subject Tests, meaning if the ACT is taken, all testing requirements are met.

Schools the DO NOT “superscore” the ACT, as told to me by each school’s admission department:

College of William and Mary
DePaul University
Emory University
Fordham University
Lehigh University
Penn State University**
Syracuse University
Tulane University
University of Central Florida
University of Florida
University of Michigan**
University of North Carolina
University of Virginia
Villanova University

**These schools do not “superscore” the SAT either; rather, they take the total best score on any given test day.

Please Note:  I will continue to update the schools as I call them.  If you have a specific school or list of schools in mind that you would like for me to research, please leave a comment with the information.  Thanks!

    hi
    i checked the Penn State and they said they accept superscore…i dont agree with this

    • Thank you for the comment. Since admission departments often change their policies, I called Penn State’s Main Campus today and spoke with an admission’s officer, and she confirmed that Penn State still does NOT superscore either the SAT or ACT. Rather, Penn State only takes the best test day for each test. Thanks for reading and if you have any other questions or concerns, please let me know.
