Princeton suspends undergraduate standardized testing requirement, compresses application deadlines for 2020-21

Thursday, Jun 18, 2020

The Office of Admission announced that due to the unprecedented challenges presented by COVID-19, including the disruption to coursework this spring and the lack of access to the ACT and SAT, Princeton will pause on its standardized testing requirement as part of its holistic review process for the 2020-21 application cycle.

Additionally, the University will move to one undergraduate application deadline of Jan. 1, 2021, for this first-year admission cycle. All applicants will apply using either the Coalition Application or Common Application through the Regular Decision process and will receive decisions on their applications by April 1, 2021.
