Reporting Admissions Test Results
Although your Trinity transcript includes your SAT or ACT scores, colleges will often require official reports sent directly to them from the testing agency. It is your responsibility as an applicant to report your scores by 1) indicating a college as a score recipient at the time you register to take a test, 2) indicate the colleges you want to receive your scores at the time you take the exam, or 3) completing a request on the SAT or ACT website or by calling the testing agencies.
Many colleges have become test optional in recent years; the decision of whether a student should submit testing to one or more colleges should be discussed with that student’s college counselor.
Students who elect to submit their test scores may have the option of self-reporting their scores. This could be done via the Common Application or on their transcript, as we include SAT and ACT scores on the Trinity transcript as a matter of convenience for colleges. There are some colleges that, if a student elects to or is asked to submit testing, will require official scores sent directly from a testing agency. It is a student’s responsibility to investigate the policies of the specific colleges that interest them.
