EAST LANSING, Mich. (Great Lakes News) – Submitting ACT and SAT scores will continue to be optional for prospective Michigan State University students through at least 2026.

The pilot program began in 2020 during COVID-19 restrictions and shutdowns. School officials say the program removes barriers and provides additional access to higher education.
MSU officials chose a six-year window to evaluate retention and graduation rate trends for students who do not submit their test scores when applying.
Roughly half of the latest enrolled freshman class at MSU opted not to include ACT or SAT scores.
