Do I need to submit test scores to apply to Eastern University?
Eastern University, long touting the motto of faith, reason, and justice, has made the decision to adopt a test optional approach to all undergraduate admission decisions for the 2023-24 academic year. A test-optional admissions policy means that test scores are not required for regular admission to the University.
