FOR FALL 2023 FRESHMAN APPLICANTS:

Grand Valley State University is test optional for Fall of 2023. 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 March 1st 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.
