ACT/SAT Test Scores
In response to standardized test cancellations amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Mount Union has approved a test optional policy for students applying for admission to the University for the 2020 fall semester. To learn more, please review the test optional policy.
First-year applicants are required to submit official test results from either the ACT or SAT-I. Your scores may be reported directly to the University of Mount Union from either the testing agency, ACT.org or collegeboard.com, or an official document from your high school (see acceptable delivery methods under Official Transcrip(s)). Talk with your school counselor for more details on test dates, registration, and score submission.
Counselor and Reference Forms
Transfer students must request a Dean's Evaluation Form in order to be considered for acceptance at the University of Mount Union. This form must be submitted from your most recently attended institution. The Office of Admission reserves the right to require a Dean's Evaluation Form from any previously attended institution. If past or pending disciplinary issues are evident, we will also require a Dean's Evaluation Form from every institution at which the student was enrolled.
