Schools That Require Or Recommend SAT Subject Tests (“SAT II” Tests)

All data provided on this list are current for the 2007-2008 school year.

Special circumstances and unusual conditions are indicated wherever known, so please read this list carefully.

In all cases, however, be certain to double-check with the school(s) to which you are applying to assure that information on SAT Subject testing is both accurate and up-to-date.

Sources of information consulted in the compilation of this list include:

The College Handbook 2008, published by The College Board

individual college catalogs and web pages; and direct contact with individual admission offices
The list is organized by state with colleges and universities listed alphabetically within each section.

If no bracketed statement follows the name of the college, SAT Subject Tests are REQUIRED for admission to that school. The number of SAT Subject Tests required for admission follows the name of the school. If specific SAT Subject Tests are prescribed, this is indicated by <characters in carats>—otherwise, students are free to submit any SAT Subject Tests of their choosing. In all other cases—SAT Subject Tests recommended or known special circumstances—specific information is provided if it is known. If there is a particular number of SAT Subject Tests a school recommends, this is noted; if the school in question does not specify a number, the designation is simply “recommended.”

A special note to homeschooled students: your requirements may be somewhat more extensive than those for individuals that attend public or private school. Please be certain to check with each individual college or university regarding SAT Subject Test requirements (or recommendations) for homeschooled students. The same goes for international students as regards differential expectations and requirements (such as (such as TOEFL, ELPT or additional Subject Tests). Please be sure to check with each individual college or university to which you apply!

NOTE: All references to SAT are to the “new” version of the test (March 2005 and later) containing a Writing section; all references to ACT are to the version with Writing (February 2005 and later)
