Colleges Change SAT Subject Test Requirements

Hurricane Sandy's impact on the college admissions process continues to unfold. Colleges first reacted to the storm by extending early application deadlines. However, extending deadlines did not solve the problem for early applicants intending to take the SAT or  an SAT Subject Test on November 3. When the College Board postponed this test till November 17 or December 15 due to test center closings, it made it impossible for schools to receive the results in time. Following a flood of inquiries, colleges are beginning to post their revised policies on this issue on their websites.

Boston College whose early deadline was extended to November 13, has stated that they will review early applications following the receipt of subject test scores from applicants taking the test on November 17. Columbia University is waiving SAT subject test requirements for students registered for the November 17 test. Columbia also notes that students who had planned to take the SAT for the first time on Novemeber 3 should apply regular decision.
