Your non-refundable enrollment deposit is due by May 1. Meeting this application deadline qualifies you for all merit scholarships, including the Griffith Scholarship.

Why does Presbyterian College offer a test-optional policy?

At the core of Presbyterian College’s mission lies a belief in the power of the liberal arts and the development of the whole student, including mind, body, and soul. Thus, it is only fitting that we in the Office of Admission have always taken a holistic approach to reviewing applicants, focusing on the many strengths of a student, not just a student’s ACT or SAT scores. This approach, paired with our internal and external research surrounding factors correlating with academic potential, yielded a decision to move toward the offering of a test-optional admission policy to students seeking admission to the College. Now, applicants can use their performance in the classroom to showcase academic achievement and academic potential.

How do I know if test-optional is right for me?

Do you feel as if your test scores are an accurate reflection of your academic ability? If so, applying test-optional probably isn’t for you. However, if you feel that your performance in your high school coursework is a better reflection of your academic ability than your ACT or SAT scores, you can choose not to include your test scores in the admission process.

Are there any students who cannot apply test-optional?

There are three groups of students who cannot apply test-optional:

  • Per NCAA mandate, prospective student athletes must submit test scores for athletic eligibility.
  • Homeschooled students must submit test scores for admission purposes.
  • International students are required to submit standardized test scores in order to demonstrate proficiency in the English language.

How will PC review my application if I don’t submit my test scores?

Seeing that the Office of Admission uses the holistic approach to reviewing applicants, the process of reviewing test-optional applicants and non-test-optional applicants is quite similar. In regard to academics, the Admission Committee will evaluate a test-optional applicant’s academic record, including grades, strength of high school curriculum, as well as his or her overall grade trend. Letters of recommendation, writing ability, community involvement, and other achievements will also be considered.

Will I still qualify for merit scholarships if I apply test-optional?

Yes, you will still be eligible for the College’s merit scholarships, which are awarded based on a student’s academic performance, leadership ability, writing ability, and commitment to service.

If I decide to be a Blue Hose, will I need to submit my test scores?

Yes. After you enroll at Presbyterian College, you will be asked to submit your ACT and/or SAT scores for advising and placement purposes.

and be the pattern for something greater.

IT'S TIME TO CUE THE BAGPIPES.
