The SAT I: Reasoning Test is a three-hour, primarily multiple-choice test that measures developed critical reading, mathematical reasoning and writing abilities related to successful performance in college.  The SAT I is intended to supplement the secondary school record and other information about the student in assessing readiness for college-level work.

As part of entry requirements, Southwestern Admissions accepts a SAT composite score of 1350 or above if the test was taken prior to October 1, 2016 and a composite score of 990 if test was taken after October 1, 2016. SAT scores are accepted from all students except those enrolling in the LPN or ADN Nursing programs. Nursing students are required to take ACCUPLACER or have a composite ACT score of 20 or higher. It is the responsibility of the student to see that an official SAT score record is on file with the Registrar's Office.

Southwestern is not an SAT testing site.  To find an SAT testing location, register for the SAT test, gather information on test dates, deadlines, or score reports, or explore test preparation, contact the College Board.
