    Frequently Asked Questions

    Which institutions are test optional?
    Currently all ACM and GLCA institutions are test optional. Many schools will continue to be test optional for students applying for Fall 2022 while some are still reviewing their policy.


    Do students who apply without a test score have the same opportunities for merit scholarships as those who provide a score?


    Do any ACM and GLCA institutions have direct admit programs?
    Yes, Coe, Luther, and St. Olaf Colleges have nursing programs. Lawrence University and St. Olaf College offer direct admission for their music programs and Wabash College offers direct admission for their Center For Innovation Business and Entrepreneurship (CIBE) and Wabash Democracy and Public Discourse Initiative (WDPD).


    Are campuses currently open for visits?
    While the majority of campuses are open for visits, some are not. It’s a good idea to check with a specific campus before planning a visit. Many campuses have limited the number of visits offered per day. Remember, campuses are still requiring masks and social distancing.


    Are campuses offering in-person instruction?
    The majority of ACM and GLCA institutions are offering hybrid instruction in winter/spring 2021. However, some are offering in-person instruction. For Fall 2021, the method of instruction is still being determined with the hopes that most would be in-person.
