Official test scores must be sent to Stockton University directly from the College Board (SAT code–2889) or ACT (ACT code–2589for the following: 

  • Applicants to majors requiring test scores (not eligible for test-optional admission)
  • Home-schooled students 
  • International students
  • Candidates for freshman scholarship consideration
  • Students choosing to submit scores for placement purposes, even if applying for admission as test optional

Super Scoring

Stockton University will super score standardized test results by considering the highest section scores (EBRW, Mathematics) across all SAT test dates. With ACT, rather than confining scores to one particular date, we will use the highest section scores, forming the highest possible Composite score. Exceptions to super scoring include the Accelerated Medical and Pharmacy dual degrees. These programs require a minimum Math sub-score, and minimum combined/composite score from a single testing date. 

Test-Optional Procedures

Students applying test optional should answer the Preferred Testing Plan question on The Common Application or the Stockton application with "I will NOT submit SAT or ACT scores and wish to be reviewed under Stockton's test-optional policy."
