**Test-Optional Admission Policy

Hiram College is proud to offer a test-optional admission policy.

What does that mean?
Hiram College recognizes that standardized testing isn’t always an accurate measurement of a student’s academic abilities. Respectively, Hiram is committed to looking at the whole person.

While students are encouraged to take the ACT or SAT and to submit their test scores as a part of their application, we have waived that requirement for admission purposes into Hiram College. Partnership programs such as the BA to MD (Northeast Ohio Medical University) and the BA to DDM (Dental Medicine with CWRU) require ACT scores for admission. Students seeking teacher licensure and nursing are encouraged to submit ACT or SAT scores.

Study findings show that the most accurate predictor of future success is your daily classroom performance — your high school transcript — not your results on one standardized test.

Admission Offers

All applications are reviewed on a holistic basis, which means admission decisions are based on all available information regarding a student’s academic and extra-curricular merits.

All offers of admission are conditional upon receipt of a final secondary school transcript and any other conditions specified at the time of admission. Students who have been admitted to the College are asked to make a $200 deposit. This deposit is due no later than May 1 and is non-refundable. Students applying for financial aid may defer paying the deposit until financial aid is determined.

Note: Hiram College recommends that all First-Year Students interested in financial assistance file FAFSA after Oct. 1 of their senior year of high school. Please add Hiram College to your FAFSA by using school code 003049.
