Schools in the Montana University System have joined a growing national trend ending test ACT or SAT test requirements for first-time undergraduate students. Thursday the Board of Regents voted unanimously to approve a permanent change to the admissions policy after it instituted a one-year pause on requiring standardized test scores in April 2020 due to the pandemic. Previously, ACT or SAT scores were required for undergraduate students attending one of the university system’s four-year campuses. Students can still choose to submit them for other scholarships and to demonstrate math and writing skills to determine course placements.
