To be considered for admission, the SAT Critical Reading (old SAT) or Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (redesigned SAT) and Math sections are required. In application review, a concordance table provided by the College Board will be used to convert the old SAT test to the new SAT scoring system. Additionally, we will use these tables to determine your highest composite score between tests.
For the ACT, we consider the highest four sub-scores (english, reading, science, and math) from all test score reports submitted to calculate your highest composite score.
The writing components are only required if you are admitted to the University of Miami, choose to enroll, and wish to use your SAT or ACT scores for course placement purposes. The writing components are not offered separately. You can select whether you want to take the SAT or ACT with or without the writing component when registering for the test. Keep in mind that if you chose to add it after you register for the exam, it is not guaranteed since the testing location may or may not have enough materials, so we recommend you register for it when registering for the test.
SAT Subject Tests in math and one science (Biology, Chemistry, or Physics) are required for the Dual-Degree Programs in Biochemistry/Molecular Biology.

If you take the test more than once, please ensure that the testing agency sends all of your scores so that we have your best performance on record.

There is no limit to the number of test scores you may submit to us for your application.Students can add the writing portion of the exam up until the day of the exam if space permits it
