SAT and ACT testing centers are shut down. In light of that, Lock Haven University will waive the SAT/ACT score requirement for most prospective students, effective immediately. Students that have SAT or ACT scores are still encouraged to submit them.

The Office of Admissions will continue to thoroughly review each applicant and, in some cases, require additional information such as a phone interview. Certain majors do not qualify for this exemption, including biology, chemistry, geology, health science, nursing and physics.
“Our team of admissions experts are prepared to review each applicant to ensure they meet our requirements,” said Dr. William Stahler, executive director of admissions. “We will continue to place heavy emphasis on curriculum, grade point average, and, if necessary, require a virtual interview or writing sample.”
Lock Haven University operates on a rolling admissions policy and is still accepting applications for the fall 2020 semester. New applicants are encouraged to submit test scores if they are available; students who do not submit SAT/ACT scores will unfortunately have limited scholarship opportunities.
