You are More than A Test Score!

Test Optional Applicants

Test Optional Admissions is for prospective students who have decided that their standardized test scores are not a true representation of their academic potential; and therefore, have opted for their scores to not be considered as part of their application for admission to Brevard College.

Test Optional Tips

  • Answer the test optional questions thoroughly and thoughtfully. You'll write your answers on your application for admission. The short answer prompts are below.
  • You're writing to an academic audience so write your responses with this audience in mind.
  • Proofread your responses carefully and minimize (if not eliminate) spelling, syntax, and grammatical errors.
  • Most importantly, tell us your story in your responses. We're interested in learning more about you.
  • Each of your responses should be 500 words.
