infoTest-Optional Admissions

The University of Missouri has extended its Test-Optional Admissions pilot program for students applying to enter in 2025. Students applying for admission for Fall 2025 will have the option to apply as test-optional.

Research indicates that high school GPA coupled with standardized test scores provides the best prediction of academic success at Mizzou. Supplying test scores can help support a student’s admission into the University of Missouri and their applications for scholarships, the Honors College and specific scholars programs.

Students applying test-optional will answer three short essay questions as part of their application for admission. If applying through the Common Application, the essay component of the application will be required. For more information, visit our admission requirements page.
