Notre Dame says the incoming Class of 2025 will have revised application requirements.
The University says first-year and transfer applicants will not be required to submit standardized test scores as part of their application under a one-year pilot program with the option of expanding to future terms.
The new test-optional pilot is the result of years of discussions between admissions, scholarship, and financial aid officials. It will allow students the choice to submit a test score to be included in their evaluation, further empowering them to make decisions for their strongest application for Notre Dame.
The school says they will continue to follow NCAA regulations for recruitment and applications for student-athletes.
