A Maryland School Moves Away From SAT

+ More

Salisbury University will become the first state school in Maryland not to require standardized test scores for admission, the state's Board of Regents decided last week. "There are issues about the SAT and its fairness--there's certainly a coordination between success on the SAT and family income," University System Chancellor Brit Kirwan told the Diamondback. "I think we all know students who retake the SAT--which is not a cheap test--and get a better score." The plan will go into effect next year, beginning a five-year test period. If the test goes well, the regents could expand the policy.
