Test Optional Program
The Cooper Union undergraduate admission process is currently test optional. If students applying to Cooper choose to take the SAT or ACT and wish to submit their test results as part of their application, we will consider them in context and as part of our holistic review process. If students choose not to submit test results, we will evaluate their candidacy without scores and in keeping with our standard approach. Students will not be implicitly advantaged or disadvantaged by their test submission decision.
In addition, The Cooper Union graduate programs do not currently require a GRE submission. A GRE test result may be submitted should an applicant choose to do so, however there will be no implicit advantage or disadvantage based on a submission or lack thereof.
