Fall 2020 Test Optional Admissions Policy

In an attempt to ensure opportunity and access for incoming students in the stressful environment created by COVID-19, Eastern Michigan University will be instituting a Test Optional admission policy for Fall 2020 applicants. This option is available and applies to incoming First Year domestic students entering in Fall 2020 only. To be considered for test optional admission a student must do the following:

  1. Apply to Eastern Michigan University. If you haven’t done so already, please visit emich.edu/selectscholars to apply. 
  2. Meet the minimum requirement of a 3.0 cumulative High School Grade Point Average or higher (on a 4.0 scale) for consideration. Official transcripts are required for test optional consideration.
  3. Opt in to Test Optional Admission by completing this form.

After students have completed these steps, they will be reviewed for admission by an EMU Admissions Officer. Test optional review will include an in-depth look at a student’s official academic record examining academic coursework, grades received in core courses, academic trends, etc..
