Alert! ACT and SAT score delays

Both ACT and SAT have reported technical difficulties in delivering scores to Ohio State. For ACT, scoring for the September 12, 2015, test may be delayed. For SAT, rush scores or other scores sent after October 14 may be delayed. We are working with both agencies to resolve the issue. Please be assured that Ohio State will consider scores that arrive late because of these issues "on time" for our November 1 priority/early action deadline. No further action is required; please do not send unofficial score sheets. Direct questions to


Here's what we're telling applicants about Ohio State and the new SAT

What about the new SAT?

You may have heard about a new SAT exam coming in March 2016.

If you're currently a senior, you don't have to worry about the new exam and should continue to follow our current admissions requirements.

If you're applying for the autumn 2017, summer 2017 or spring 2018 term, Ohio State will accept scores from either the current or new SAT. The essay for either version will not be required.
