Standardized Testing Requirements

SAT or ACT scores are not required of transfer applicants.

Trinity Score Choice Policy

If you decide to send SAT or ACT scores, Trinity’s Admissions Office will consider an applicant’s highest section scores from all testing dates as part of our final admissions decision. (This policy includes both the SAT and ACT.) If and when an applicant submits new scores, we will update their record with those scores.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to have test scores sent to the Admissions Office only if you decide to send SAT or ACT scores. Trinity’s CEEB code is 3899; our ACT code is 0598.​​​​​​​​​​
