Iowa State is Test-Optional for Fall 2021 US Freshman Applicants

Because the pandemic has limited opportunities for students to take the ACT or SAT, Iowa State does not require Spring/Summer/Fall 2021 US freshman applicants to submit ACT or SAT scores.  These applicants may decide for themselves whether they wish to self-report their test scores and have them factored into their admission decision.
