Submit SAT/ACT scores (Optional)
The SAT/ACT is optional for international students studying outside the U.S. and currently enrolled in a school that does not follow the American system of education. Although we do not require the SAT or ACT to be considered for admission, we encourage all students to submit scores if available. Syracuse University does not require the SAT II subject tests.
