ACT/SAT Requirements for Fall 2020

In response to the reduced number of national and state testing dates for ACT and SAT caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Cumberland University is suspending the requirement for standardized test scores for students seeking admission as first time freshmen for the Fall 2020 semester. Additionally, the requirement of an ACT or SAT score for dual enrollment students is being suspended for Fall 2020.
