A Word About Standardized Tests

All U.S. citizens applying for admission to W&L are required to submit the results of either the SAT (W&L's code is 5887) or the ACT (W&L's code is 4430). But here's the good news:

  • Writing scores are not required on either exam
  • We will accept either version of the SAT 
  • We "super score" both the SAT and ACT (though we will not do so for results from different generations of SAT). This means we will combine your best section scores from multiple tests to produce your highest SAT or ACT score.
  • SAT Subject Tests are not required for admission to W&L.

International applicants must submit standardized test results. We prefer that they submit the SAT or ACT. However, when English is not a student's first language or the language of instruction in his or her school, we will accept the TOEFL or IELTS as demonstration of proficiency in English.
