SAT Policy for Fall 2017
The current version of the ​SAT will be discontinued in March, 2016, and replaced by the new SAT with an optional writing section. Students applying​ to Brown's ​Class of 2021 and​ beyond are NOT required ​to take the optional writing section on the new​ SAT. Brown will still require applicants submitting the SAT to also provide results from two Subject Tests of the applicant’s choice. Brown currently ​accepts the ACT with Writing in lieu of the SAT and Subject Tests. First-y​ear applicants to the Class of 2021 and​ beyond are​ strongly encouraged, but NOT​ required, to include the ACT Writing Section.
