ACT/SAT Information

How does UofL accept student test scores?  Check out some helpful hints:


  • UofL accepts either ACT (code: 1556) or SAT* (code: 1838).

  • UofL will accept scores from the high school trancript.

  • UofL will use the highest composite on the ACT. The SAT is converted to an ACT composite score. We do not superscore.

  • We recommend that students submit all test scores. Subscores will be used for placement and for determining college readiness in English, reading and math.

  • The December ACT and SAT are the last exams a student can use for the scholarship deadline.

  • UofL will accept the residual ACT test given on our campus each month. The residual ACT taken at UofL is only accepted as an official score at UofL. Get more information on the residual ACT

    *Scores reflect the new SAT (beginning March 2016). For any questions regarding SAT exams taken prior to March 2016, please contact the Office of Admissions at 502.852.6531 or
