Admissions Officers

Evaluating International Students

Just as you do with domestic students, use ACT scores from international students to evaluate and validate your international applicants. The ACT is administered in 130 countries worldwide. By requiring your international students to take the ACT as part of your school’s admissions process, you can compare a student’s performance to the ACT College Readiness Benchmarks and immediately know the student’s English proficiency. You can reduce your risk by evaluating and comparing the ACT scores to the student’s high school transcripts as a validation of the student’s college readiness.
