2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR:

SCHOOLS THAT REQUIRE, RECOMMEND OR UTILIZE SAT SUBJECT TESTS IN ADMISSION OR FOR PLACEMENT/CREDIT


All data provided on this list are current for the 2017-2018 school year. Special circumstances and unusual conditions are indicated wherever known, so please read this list carefully. In all cases, however, be certain to double-check with the school(s) to which you are applying to assure that information on SAT Subject testing is both accurate and up-to-date. Sources of information consulted in the compilation of this list include: The College Handbook 2018, published by The College Board; individual college catalogs and web pages; the Common Data Set of The College Board; the National Center for Education Statistics; and direct contact with individual admission offices
The list is organized by state with colleges and universities listed alphabetically within each section. If no bracketed statement follows the name of the college, SAT Subject Tests are REQUIRED for admission to that school. The number of SAT Subject Tests required for admission follows the name of the school. If specific numbers and/or content of SAT Subject Tests are prescribed, this is indicated by —otherwise, students are free to submit any SAT Subject Tests of their choosing. In all other cases—SAT Subject Tests recommended or known special circumstances—specific information is provided if it is known. If there is a particular number of SAT Subject Tests a school recommends, this is noted; if the school in question does not specify a number, the designation is simply “recommended.”
A special note to homeschooled students: your requirements may be somewhat more extensive than those for individuals that attend public or private school. Please be certain to check with each individual college or university regarding SAT Subject Test requirements (or recommendations) for homeschooled students. The same goes for international students as regards differential expectations and requirements (such as TOEFL, IELTS or additional Subject Tests). Please be sure to check with each individual college or university to which you apply!


NOTE: References to SAT are to both the “new” version of the test (March

2016 and later) and the “old” version (three parts with Writing section, prior to March 2016)
