Submit Your Test Scores
ACT/SAT scores will be waived as a requirement for all new applicants through the fall 2022 semester.
However, keep in mind that the submission of your ACT/SAT scores can reduce or even eliminate the need for you to take placement tests, and will still be required if you wish to be considered for the UC Blue Ash Honors program.
If you intend to submit ACT scores, you should do so as soon as possible so that you can be sure if you will need to complete any placement tests.
Please note: if you graduated from high school more than one year before your admission application, the test is still recommended, but not required.
Placement Testing Exemption
After confirmation, you need to setup your placement testing or submit qualifying exemptions (applicable transfer credit, AP scores, or qualifying ACT/SAT scores.)
UC will need these scores on file in order to determine if a student is exempted from placement testing and are eligible to attend orientation or register for courses.
If intending to use qualifying scores instead of completing a placement test, please make sure to send your scores as soon as possible.
How to send your scores
You can request official ACT scores to be sent using the instructions below. Please remember that you must score an 18 or higher on the Combined English and Writing or English section of the ACT or a 430 or higher on the English or Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, or Writing section of the SAT to qualify for placement test exemption. It typically takes up to 4 weeks for scores to be sent from ACT/SAT, received by the University of Cincinnati and processed to your academic record.
