Vassar SAT 2022 : SAT Score Calculator | Good SAT Scores Range
For the 2020–2021, 2021–2022, and 2022–2023 admission cycles, Vassar will not require students to submit SAT or ACT. The middle 50% of last year’s admitted class scored between 1400–1520 on the SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW) and Math Sections.
The ACT middle 50% range was between 32–34. If a student chooses to submit their SAT and/or ACT scores, they will be considered but are secondary to the applicant’s high school transcript. Remember, we look at your application as a whole, and not just one particular element.
Good SAT Scores Range
Should you choose to submit your scores, we will take your highest combined test scores. So, if you have taken the SAT or the ACT multiple times, Vassar will combine your strongest scores on each section. Likewise, if you have taken both the SAT and the ACT, Vassar will take whichever scores are higher.
What is the latest date I can take standardized tests?
For candidates who elect the Early Decision Round I (November 15) deadline, the November sitting for the SAT and October sitting for the ACT are the latest allowed.
For those who elect the Early Decision Round II (January 1) deadline, the December sittings for the SAT and the ACT are the latest allowed.
For candidates who elect the Regular Decision (January 1) deadline, the December sitting for the SAT and ACT are the latest allowed.
Important Note: Applicants are advised not to wait until the last test date available for your application round. In the event of test date postponements due to weather, or delays in test score releases, Vassar tries to work with students but cannot guarantee scores will arrive in time for applicants to be considered in their chosen application round.

To submit your required standardized test scores to Vassar, you may request official scores from the College Board and/or ACT. In addition, Vassar will accept complete test scores reported on an official high school transcript, or copies of official SAT/ACT score reports validated by a school counselor.
Admission to Vassar is highly selective. Although Vassar weigh a number of factors in the admission decision, the most important is academic ability, as demonstrated by performance in high school. Vassar also consider personal strengths, motivation, and potential as evidenced in essays, recommendations, and out-of-class involvements. Students applying to Vassar during the 2020–2021, 2021–2022, and 2022–2023 admission cycles will be able to choose whether or not to submit SAT/ACT scores.
Vassar recommend students elect four years of English, mathematics, laboratory science, history or social science, and foreign language. Students should take a substantial portion of their work in enriched, accelerated, or honors courses or in Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate programs when these options are available. Special attention is given to the academic breadth, depth, and rigor of candidates’ junior and senior year programs.
