ACT or SAT Score Submission

Lawrence is proud to be one of the first selective colleges in the Midwest to embrace a "test-optional" admission review. We recognize that students can demonstrate their potential for success at Lawrence in may ways, and that performance in a rigorous high school curriculum is the strongest indicator of success. With this in mind we welcome but do not require students to submit test scores with their applications for admission and scholarship. Historically, about 75% of our applicants have chosen to submit scores with their applications.

Domestic applicants that choose to have ACT or SAT scores considered as part of their application may submit self-reported or official scores for admission review. At the time of enrollment, domestic students that included test scores as part of their application are required to submit an official score to the University. Official scores must come directly from the testing organization or be included on an official high school transcript. 

The following school codes may be used when sending scores electronically from the testing organization.
ACT - 4596
SAT - 1398

English Language Proficiency (International Students)

An official TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, or ACT report is required for all international students whose native language is not English, or whose previous instruction was not in English for a minimum of 7 years.

The following school codes may be used when sending scores electronically from the testing organization.
TOEFL - 1398
SAT - 1398
ACT - 4596

If your first language is English, or you have received instruction in English for a minimum of 7 years, you may request to waive the Proficiency requirement through a signed letter from your counselor or other school official stating your proficiency level and/or years of English experience.
