Test Optional Policy

Hood College evaluates students on their academic preparation, talents, and interests, as well as their potential to achieve their educational and career goals. Understanding that standardized test scores may not be the best indication of an academically prepared student, we offer test optional admission for all domestic applicants.

All candidates applying to Hood College will be considered for admission based on the rigor of their academic curriculum, GPA, letters of recommendation, essay, and extracurricular and community activities.
