Freshman applicant admissions policy change due to impact of COVID-19 and test cancellations for Fall 2020 and Fall 2021
At Greensboro College, we believe in a holistic review of our applicants. A full review of all materials submitted with the application, and especially the high school record, is key to understanding a student’s preparedness and academic ability. Our process also recognizes the value of standardized tests; however, due to the complications and stress of COVID-19 on high school seniors, the college will change its current admissions policy and will go test-optional for Fall 2020 and Fall 2021. If you have previous test scores and you think your test scores are an accurate representation of your ability, please send them to us.
How to apply test optional:
In order to remove the test score requirement from your application checklist, please be sure to answer the question YES I am applying as test-optional admission and will provide and essay.
In lieu of a test score, submit an essay answering the following question – Why do you wish to attend Greensboro College? Or a topic of your choice. Write an essay that is well thought out and gives a glimpse of you as a future student.
