Gordon is waiving standardized test score requirements. For any student who has been able to take a test, Gordon will still accept your scores (for SAT, visit collegeboard.org, school code 3417; for ACT, visit act.org, school code is 1838). We also accept the Classical Learning Test (CLT), an alternative college entrance exam used by many students, which is available online. Students who are unable to submit scores will not be at a disadvantage in the admissions selection process. Learn more about Gordon's standardized test policy ➔

If you’re planning to major in art or music, there are a few additional requirements.
See the music admissions checklist and/or the art portfolio guidelines.
