Test Optional Policy Extensions (2/28/21)

Test Optional Policy Extensions (2/28/21)

Although most colleges implemented one-year test-optional policies in 2020 (for the class of 2021), quite a few schools went TO on multi-year pilots. Below we’ve included some of the more popular multi-year pilot schools as well as those that have extended a TO policy for one additional year. Stay tuned for more extensions and moves to being test-optional for good.
