Yes. We will calculate and evaluate your highest composite score from each of the sub-sections of either the SAT or ACT from all test score reports submitted. This is called super scoring. There is no limit to the number of test scores you may submit to us for your application.

SAT or ACT Exam (Required for admission consideration)

To be considered for admission, the SAT Critical Reading (old SAT) or Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (redesigned SAT) and Math sections are required. We consider the highest sub-scores from all test scores submitted to calculate your highest composite score.

 For the ACT, we consider the highest four sub-scores (english, reading, science, and math) from all test score reports submited to calculate your highest composite score.

The SAT Essay or ACT Writing Test (Recommended but required ONLY for course placement)

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. You can select whether you want to take the SAT or ACT with or without the writing component when registering for the test or add it later. The writing components are not offered separately. SAT Subject Tests in math and one science (Biology, Chemistry, or Physics) are required for the Dual-Degree Programs in Medicine and Biochemistry/Molecular Biology majors.

Additional Information

Beginning in Spring 2016, applicants may submit scores from either the old or redesigned SAT. Students who take both tests will be evaluated on their best score (see details above).

All testing must be completed by November for Early Decision I and Early Action applicants and all testing must be completed by December for Early Decision II and Regular Decision applicants.

Test scores will only be accepted if they are submitted directly from the testing agency. 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. The Admission Committee will consider all official test scores from multiple test dates. We will use the highest composite score from among each test that you’ve taken. This is called super scoring. 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
