Hofstra U makes SAT, ACT tests optional

Posted: Updated:

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) - Hofstra University has announced that it will be making SAT and ACT admissions tests optional starting in 2015.

The private school joins a growing number of universities across the nation that is making the tests optional.

The new policy will apply to all undergraduate students entering in the fall of 2015 except international and home-schooled students.

Newsday reports that the institution will focus on students' high school performance in its admissions decisions.

The Hempstead, Long Island, campus has 6,800 undergraduates and 3,000 graduate students. It offers professional training in law, medicine, engineering and other fields.

It plans to expand into Manhattan with a fast-track MBA program designed for working professionals, beginning with the fall semester.
