Information for Prospective Students
For students applying for admission to Gannon for the Fall 2021 semester as a freshman, the SAT/ACT requirement has been waived for a vast majority of our academic programs. The only academic programs that will still require the submission of SAT/ACT scores are those that have an affiliation with a college, university or professional school (i.e. LECOM Medical/Pharmacy/Dental, Case Western Dental, Duquesne School of Law, etc.).
While test scores will not be used to determine admission, students who do have SAT/ACT scores are encouraged to submit them to potentially be considered for additional scholarship dollars. Gannon's scholarship model allows for merit awards to be offered without test scores, but in some cases, test scores may increase the value of the merit award.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and with the recommended measures of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention that the University has adopted, all in-person spring events that were scheduled by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions have been postponed. This includes the Admitted Student Days, Knights in Your Neighborhood events and Spring Open House.
However, we are offering students the opportunity to virtually meet with our Gannon University Admissions Staff for answers to your questions about finalizing your enrollment for the Fall 2020 semester or to simply learn more about what Gannon has to offer you. You may email an advisor directly with any questions by visiting www.gannon.edu/advisor, or you may text your questions to 814-257-4205.
