RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Virginia Commonwealth University is stressing grades over SAT scores for applicants.
University President Michael Rao announced the school will no longer require students with a grade point average of 3.3 or higher to submit SAT scores.
Rao said the scoring system quote “fundamentally flawed” in his State of the University on Tuesday.
He’s not alone, either. Hundreds of universities have dropped the SAT requirement.
VCU is the first of three research universities in the Commonwealth to drop the requirement.
