If you choose to include ACT or SAT test scores with your application, you are encouraged to self-report your test scores.
If you apply via the Common Application, you can submit your scores by self-reporting in the ‘Testing’ section with all applicable test scores, as well as test score-related questions in the UW–Madison ‘Academics’ section, or by self-reporting in your MyUW Student Center (beginning late-September and after your application is received and processed).
If you apply via the UW System Application, you can self-report your scores using your MyUW Student Center (beginning mid-September, and after your application is received and processed).
You may also submit your official scores directly from the testing site. Please note this does have an additional cost and will add 2–4 weeks to the application completion process. Our test code is 4656 for the ACT and 1846 for the SAT. Do not send your results rush (SAT) or priority (ACT); we receive all scores electronically on a daily basis so there is not an advantage to rush or priority delivery.
If you wish to add updated score(s), you can do so by self-reporting in your MyUW Student Center.
To assure that your test score(s) are considered with your application, you must either self-report your scores or have official scores sent from the testing agency, received in our office by our deadlines.
Note: official test scores will be required prior to enrollment for those who wish to have them included in their application evaluation. Incorrect reporting of test scores may result in your admission offer being revoked and scholarship awards being forfeited.
