Can I have my SAT scores sent on my high school transcript?
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.
A wide variety of test results may also fulfill this requirement. For more details regarding what we will accept as part of our test flexible policy, please check out our flexible testing policy page.
