SAT Subject Test Waiver
Students who submit the SAT are required to also submit two SAT Subject Tests. However, students may request a waiver of the Subject Test requirement if the cost of taking the Subject Tests represents a financial hardship or if other circumstances would make taking the Subject Tests a hardship for an applicant. Please contact the Admission Office at email@example.com or call 781-283-2270 if you wish to request a Subject Test waiver. Note: Students who submit the ACT with Writing are not required, or expected, to submit SAT Subject Tests.
When to take tests:
We strongly recommend that Early Decision candidates take standardized tests (either SAT or ACT) no later than November of their senior year. However, it is recommended that you complete the tests before the end of your junior year.
