Certain tests are essential to the admissions process

Entrance Exams

Prospective Undergraduate Students Entrance Exams

  • All undergraduate freshman applicants must take either the SAT (U-M code: 1839) or the ACT (U-M code: 2062).
  • Official test scores must be sent to the University directly from the testing agency itself and received by U-M before the application deadline.
  • For more information, view the application requirements.
International students are encouraged to take the SAT because the new writing component of the ACT may be unavailable outside the United States.  For more detailed information, see the International Student Exams page on the Office of Undergraduate Admissions website.

 

Prospective Graduate Students Entrance Exams

  • GRE scores are required for all applicants who did not receive a 3.25 or higher GPA  from an accredited baccalaureate program in nursing. Test scores should be sent directly to the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor (GRE code: R1839).
