Penn will not require applicants to submit the SAT or ACT for the 2023-24 application cycle and has announced that it will remain test-optional for the 2024-25 admissions cycle. This applies to first-year and transfer applicants. Applicants who do not submit SAT or ACT scores will not be at a disadvantage in the admissions process. Students who are able to take the SAT or ACT and wish to report them may continue with that plan. Learn more about our testing policy here.

Last Test Dates Accepted: February 2024 (ACT) or March 2024 (SAT).

We will only accept SAT and ACT scores taken within the past 5 years.

Most students who are admitted to Penn do not submit supplemental materials. All of the information that we feel is crucial in making an admission decision is included within our required documents. If you feel there is information essential to your application which was not able to be captured within the required documents, please visit our Supplementary Materials page learn more.

Verification Policy
All application materials, unless otherwise stated, must be official and sent directly to the University or the University’s designated application platform from an official source (e.g., high school), not through an agent or third-party vendor, with the following exceptions: submissions by government and partner organizations and/or submissions by non-profit, community-based organizations when schools are unable to provide this information on behalf of the student.

Applicants are required to attest to the accuracy and authenticity of all information and documents submitted to the University of Pennsylvania. Failure to submit complete, accurate, and authentic application documents may result in denial or revocation of admission, cancellation of academic credit, suspension, expulsion, or eventual revocation of degree. Applicants and/or school officials may be required to assist Penn Admissions in the verification of application documents and statements.

All applicants to the University of Pennsylvania must confirm on their application that they understand and agree to adhere to the above expectations. Questions about this policy can be directed to Penn Admissions at info@admissions.upenn.edu.
