Standardized Testing Requirements and Updates

A Flexible Approach

Georgetown University in Qatar is implementing a flexible approach to our standardized testing (SAT, ACT) requirements for fall 2022 applicants. GU-Q values the information provided by standardized testing and will continue to consider test scores as part of our holistic admissions review process. However, we understand that some students may be prevented from taking either the SAT or ACT due to challenges brought about by COVID-19.

For this reason, the GU-Q Office of Admissions will be flexible and fully consider applications from students who encounter difficulties completing standardized tests due to the pandemic.
