Additional notes

Memorial generally does not require that applicants complete the College Board’s SAT examinations; however, students are welcome to submit their scores if they have already written the SAT and wish to share their result.

The College Board SAT Subject Test in Mathematics - Level 1 (SATM1) may be accepted in place of Memorial’s Math Placement Test (MPT) if a minimum score is attained. Visit the Department of Mathematics & Statistics for information on placement requirements.
