Bachelor’s Program in Interdisciplinary Engineering (IDE)’s Response on Admissions of AY 2021 to COVID-19

We have been monitoring any changes made in SAT and ACT standardized test dates and have determined to temporarily relax the test requirement policies for AY 2021 applicants. The standardized test such as SAT and ACT listed in IDE’s Application Guidelines will be optional for AY 2021 applicants. This is a one-year exception due to the current extraordinary circumstances and all prospective students who are able to submit their scores are encouraged to do so. However, there will be no penalty for those who are not able to submit scores. The TOEFL or IELTS test score to demonstrate English proficiency is still required for those applicable to submit. We also accept the Duolingo English Test for AY 2021 applicants.
