Test Flexible Policy

Erskine added a test flexible policy to be put in place for the 2021-22 admissions cycle, affecting first-time freshmen applying for admission to the spring and fall 2022 terms. All incoming students with at least a 3.0 GPA (unweighted 4.0 scale) can choose to forego the submission of standardized test scores to complete the application for initial evaluation.

Checklist for applying under the test flexible policy:

  1. Submit the online application.
  2. Send a written request to the Admissions Office indicating the desire to be evaluated under the test flexible policy. Email admissions@erskine.edu with subject line “Test Flexible Request” and state that you would like to have your application evaluated without the addition of test scores.
  3. Submit high school transcript showing at least a completed junior year. Transcripts submitted must also show three completed courses in each core subject (English, mathematics, social studies, and science) with a C average or higher. Unofficial transcripts will be accepted. Transcripts can be sent to admissions@erskine.edu.

If a student meets these requirements and requests in writing an evaluation under the test flexible policy, the application file will be evaluated on a rolling basis. Admission and merit scholarships will be given to each admitted student based on his or her calculated core GPA.

Students who do not meet the qualification requirements or whose core GPA is not high enough to warrant admission will be asked to submit test scores, and their application will be kept on hold until scores are received.

Please note: all South Carolina residents will still be required to submit standardized test scores by the first day of classes to qualify for state scholarships such as Hope, Life, and Palmetto Fellows.

* International students will still be required to submit an English proficiency exam result.

**This policy is not applicable to transfer students.
