Chaminade University’s Test-Optional & Holistic Approach
Students are our top priority at Chaminade University of Honolulu. That’s why we have adopted a holistic admissions process, and are moving forward with a test-optional approach for prospective students in all future admissions cycles.
Test-optional means that we will give prospective students the option of whether or not to submit their standardized test scores (SAT or ACT) for general admission. Students will not be penalized if they choose not to submit test scores.
We know that many students don’t feel that test scores are the best reflection of their academic potential, and Chaminade wants to make sure we give students every opportunity to provide a well-rounded application for admission.
