SAT Frequently Asked Questions

What is the minimum SAT score that UT accepts?
UT takes a holistic approach to evaluating and admitting students, so we do not have a minimum requirement for either the SAT or ACT.

Will UT accept the “old” SAT scores once the new SAT is administered?

Yes, UT will accept both the new and old SAT scores from prospective students.

Does the University prefer one type of SAT over the other?
No.

Will the University “superscore” the SAT in cases where students submit new and old SAT scores?

No. Given the changes made by College Board from the old to the new SAT, “superscoring” is not possible.

Will UT require the optional essay?
No.

Will you look specifically at each subscore on the new SAT?
We will only use the SAT composite score in addition to all other application materials submitted when making admission decisions.
