How are test-optional applicants evaluated?
We thoroughly review your official high school transcript and an evaluation from your guidance counselor. We require a personal writing sample so that we can get to know you better and to evaluate your writing potential. It is highly recommended you provide a resume that outlines your participation in activities, clubs and organizations in which you participated outside of school. We also suggest that you provide letters of recommendation from teachers, coaches, employers or others who can attest to your preparedness to become a student at Spring Hill College.
Will I be eligible for scholarships?
You will automatically be considered for merit scholarships during your admission review. For all other aid, you will need to complete the FAFSA.
If I choose to apply test-optional now, but wish to have my scores considered later, can I change my mind?
No. You are unable to change the method of your application once you have submitted it.
If I apply test-optional, will I have to provide my test scores at some point?
Students will be required to supply test scores before enrollment for advising purposes to assure the best opportunity for students to be successful in their chosen field of study.
Student athletes are required, per NCAA rules, to submit test scores to determine eligibility for competition. These scores are submitted to the NCAA Clearinghouse and not necessarily directly to Spring Hill College.
