How Test Scores Are Used in the Selection Process

How are standardized test scores considered in the application selection process?

The U-M admission selection process is holistic. Standardized test scores, if provided, can be a component in determining an applicant's academic preparation and potential and can be considered as an individual factor within the context of the applicant's entire record.

We will use an applicant's highest superscore, which means that we will consider the best sub-scores reported across multiple test dates, to make an applicant as competitive as possible. You may submit your scores as a superscore, but if you wish to have us calculate the superscore for you instead, you may submit all of your test scores.

An applicant will never be penalized for submitting lower scores or choosing our test flexible (test-optional starting for 2025 cycle).
