FOR FALL 2022 FRESHMAN APPLICANTS:

Grand Valley State University will allow freshman students to apply for the fall of 2022 without test scores. We will continue to maintain our high academic standards, though the decision to submit test scores will be left entirely up to the applicant. All applicants admitted to GVSU by December 31 will be considered for merit-based scholarships, regardless of whether or not test scores are submitted with the application.

You may still submit test scores as a supplement to your application, even at a later date, for additional scholarship consideration.

The Admissions Office at Grand Valley takes a holistic approach to reviewing applications, meaning several factors of an application are evaluated to determine academic fit for GVSU. These factors include grade point average (GPA), academic rigor, short answer response on the admissions application, and standardized test scores when presented.
