Test Requirements + Test-Optional Policy

We know every applicant has a unique combination of skills. That's why at Bryant, you can decide whether you'd like to submit your SAT or ACT scores with your application or apply under our test-optional policy.

Here at Bryant, we offer an education—and an admission process—that's focused on the whole person. We know that sometimes test results may not be an accurate indicator of an applicant's overall ability to succeed in college. That’s why we have a test-optional admission policy.

This alternative allows us to consider your strengths that may be demonstrated in areas other than your ACT or SAT score.


If you feel your SAT or ACT scores aren't an accurate reflection of your abilities, or you have been impacted by the disruption of test administrations for the SAT and the ACT, you can choose not to submit them. Instead, when reading your application counselors will put an increased emphasis on your transcript and rigor of curriculum in lieu of test scores.

Applying test-optional is a personal and individual decision—so consider it carefully. Once you’ve made the choice to apply with or without your test scores, you will be unable to change this decision. To view the average SAT score and other facts about current Bryant students, read our Admitted Class Profile, which may help you make your decision.


With our comprehensive and holistic application process, the submission of SAT or ACT scores is optional. If you feel your SAT or ACT scores are an accurate representation of your academic potential, then submit them with your application. 

There are no cutoffs or minimum scores for your SAT or ACT scores or with any part of your Bryant application. To view the average SAT score and other facts about current Bryant students, see our Admitted Class Profile. To submit your scores for the SAT, use CEEB code 3095. To submit your scores for ACT, use code 3802. For more information about the SAT or ACT, visit the College Board website.
