What does "Test Blind" mean?
Test Blind refers to a policy where the Admissions review process would not look at standardized testing (SAT or ACT) even if provided by the applicant.
How is Test Blind different from Test optional?
Test optional allows students the choice of whether to submit standardized test scores for consideration in the admissions process. A test blind policy eliminates the use of test scores in the admissions evaluation process.
What about other tests like Advanced Placement, TOEFL and IELTS?
Advanced Placement scores are still used by WPI to award credit to enrolling students. TOEFL and IELTS will still be utilized by students for whom English is not their first language.
