ACT/SAT Information

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


  • UofL accepts either ACT (code: 1556) or SAT (CR + M) (code: 1838).

  • UofL will accept scores from the high school trancript.

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

  • Please 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 February 15 priority application deadline.*  They are also the last tests that can be used for the January 15 scholarship deadline.

  • UofL will accept the residul ACT test given on our campus each month.  Generally an ACT is given one week prior to both the scholarship deadline and the application priority deadline.  Remember, the residual ACT taken at UofL is only accepted as an official score at UofL. The Governor's Scholar's Program is willing to accept them for their application purposes also. Get more information on the residual ACT
