More than 1,600 schools have opted to go test-optional for fall 2021, and some may make that change permanent—especially as the pandemic has impacted many ACT and SAT testing sites.

Pace University, for example, moved its decision day to June 15, except for their performing arts students, who had to commit by the usual May 1 deadline, said Vice President of Enrollment Robina Schepp. Most universities extended the timeline, recognizing that students needed more time to make what for many is the biggest decision of their lives, Schepp said.

She said earlier this month that responses from students on committing had been slightly slower than normal but not significantly so. The university also accepted about 14 percent more students this year.

“The challenge is, for us, to really feel like we’re creating the same level of connection with students when we’re not seeing them face to face,” Schepp said.
