* Standardized test results may appear on high school transcripts but scores must be sent directly from the testing agency to be considered official. The University of Rochester considers the highest combined SAT/ACT score, even if they are from different test dates. Only your highest scores will be considered in our final admissions decision. Each time you submit scores, we will update your record with any new higher scores.
We encourage you to submit your scores each time you take the SAT. Sending your scores each time helps us to consider you for all available degree programs, special programs, and scholarships.
You can choose to further differentiate yourself from other applicants with links to electronic media (music, websites, photos, videos, etc.). Admission reviewers will consider these contents (if submitted by the deadline) during our process.
The University of Rochester values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity for all persons regardless of age, color, disability, ethnicity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other status protected by law. Further, the University complies with all applicable nondiscrimination laws in the administration of its policies, programs, and activities. Questions on compliance should be directed to the particular school or department and/or to the University's Equal Opportunity Coordinator, University of Rochester, P.O. Box 270039, Rochester, New York 14627-0039. Phone: (585) 275-9125.
We strongly recommend you use the My ROC page to start and to complete your application. It will keep track of what you've submitted and guide you through the rest of the admissions and financial aid processes.
