A Note About Test Scores
- The University of Alabama will accept from both the previous SAT and the redesigned SAT (any SAT taken on or after March 5th, 2016).
- If you have taken the previous SAT and the redesigned SAT, we will use your highest score for your admission and scholarship application reviews. Highest score will be determined by utilizing test score conversion by College Board.
- The optional writing section in the redesigned SAT will not be required for admissions or scholarship purposes.
- The writing section of the ACT will no longer be required for admissions or scholarship purposes.
