The College of the Holy Cross ranks No. 3 on Money Magazine’s list of “10 Top Colleges That Don’t Care About Your SAT Scores,” with the submission of standardized test scores being optional at the College.

According to Money Magazine, a subsidiary of TIME Inc., the list was compiled by using data from the National Center for Education Statistics and FairTest, and ranked according to Money’s annual “Best Colleges” rankings, which are based on affordability, educational quality and career outcomes.

The publication highlights the fact that Holy Cross implemented the SAT optional policy in 2006, believing that SAT scores do not reflect the College’s highly personalized application process. Rather, Holy Cross Admissions focuses on a student’s overall portfolio of academic experience and their interview, among other qualifications.

Earlier this year, the College was also ranked No. 42 overall on the publication’s list of “Best Colleges for Your Money,” in 2018, No. 7 for “Small Colleges,” and No. 15 on its list of “Most Transformative Colleges.”
