Counseling high school students on their college choices requires a lot of information. Here you'll find the materials you need in order to guide your students in their college search.

Application Process


SAT Policy


Beginning with the entering class of fall 2017, applicants who wish to submit their SAT scores may choose to submit scores from the "old" exam or "new" exam. As with the ACT exam, we suggest that students take the optional essay/writing section on the new SAT. The essay/writing portion of the new SAT is not an admission requirement. If students take both the "old" and "new" SAT exams, we will super-score the SAT exams taken for the same type of exam. We will not super-score across the "old" and "new" exams.

SAT and ACT test dates prior to November 15th will release results in time for scores to be considered with early action or early decision applications. If students are applying regular decision, test dates through December 15th will provide results in time for scores to be considered with their application. To learn more about our SAT policy, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Beginning with the class of fall 2017, students who have taken a standardized test and who choose to enroll at Saint Anselm College will be required to submit their test scores upon enrollment. Test scores may be used for academic advisement purposes.
