Standardized Test Waiver
Elizabethtown College values a strong high school record, complete with a challenging curriculum and consistently strong grades relative to your peers. For students who have demonstrated excellence during their four years of high school, Elizabethtown offers the opportunity to waive standardized testing from the application and scholarships review process. In order to qualify to take advantage of the waiver option, students must rank in the top 10% of their class or, if the school does not rank, must have at least a 3.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale.
Students who waive their scores, particularly if the scores do not reflect the same level of achievement or aptitude as the rest of their application, generally help their chances for both admissions and for scholarship. When a score is waived for a student's application, admissions and scholarship reviews place greater emphasis on the relative strength of the student's curriculum, their submitted writing samples and teacher recommendations (as they relate to preparedness and communication skills).
