Redesigned SAT 

The first administration of the redesigned SAT will be in March 2016. The redesigned SAT will primarily impact those enrolling in college for fall 2017.   

Class of 2016

  • Students will need to take the current SAT exam for maximum consideration for admission and scholarships.
  • Because the first redesigned SAT will not be available until March 2016, these scores will not be utilized for IU Northwest admission and scholarship consideration for students starting at IU Northwest in fall 2016. 

Class of 2017

  • Students will have the option of taking either the current or redesigned SAT. IU Northwest will consider and accept scores from both tests for admission and scholarship consideration.
  • Concordance tables comparing the current and redesigned SAT exams will be available in summer 2016. 

Class of 2018

  • The majority of students will have taken the redesigned SAT; however, if students have taken the current SAT, we will accept these scores as well.
