Is UT test optional?
The University of Tampa will provide test optional undergraduate admission for the Summer 2021 terms I and II, Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 entry terms. Given that students have not been able to take the ACT or SAT since February 2020 because of the pandemic, as well as the likelihood that students will not be able to safely take these tests in Fall 2020, UT will not require submission of either the ACT or SAT for admission decisions. The University evaluates prospective students holistically and will be examining unweighted GPA and course rigor for academic evaluation and merit-based scholarships for the terms noted above.

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.

Does the University “superscore” the SAT and ACT when more than one SAT or ACT test score is submitted?

Yes.

Does UT require the optional essay?
Yes.

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.
