Submitting Official Test Scores

Marquette requires official test scores to complete your application for admission. Scores are considered official if sent directly from the testing agency or if included on your high school transcript.

Scores provided by your high school

ACT and SAT scores affixed to and part of your high school transcript are considered official by Marquette.

Unofficial scores

Unofficial ACT or SAT scores will NOT be used to process an admission application. An admission decision will not be given until an official copy is received by the admissions office. Copies of a student's score report, faxed scores, electronic score reports and all other scores not submitted directly from a testing agency or printed on a high school transcript are considered unofficial.

Use of scores

Marquette uses only the highest composite score and the best administration of the ACT or SAT. In other words, we use a student's best score as part of our admission review. ACT writing scores are strongly encouraged (only one writing score is needed) and are treated independently from the ACT exam. If your highest composite score and best writing score are from two different test dates, we will use the highest scores.
