Daemen's "test optional" policy provides you with a choice regarding the submission of standardized test scores. Daemen College does not require applicants to submit standardized test scores (SAT, ACT) as part of the admission application (except for Athletic Training, Physician Assistant, Physical Therapy, and Nursing). However, students must have an 86 or higher grade point average to be considered for test optional. This policy was designed for students who have demonstrated academic excellence in the classroom and who do not believe their standardized test scores accurately reflect their abilities.
Daemen offers a rolling admissions policy, which means applications are accepted year round. This allows students to apply early and learn if they are accepted. The Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, and Nursing programs fill quickly. We encourage students interested in these programs to apply early. Many students take advantage of our rolling admissions policy and apply early.
Students who have been home schooled are requested to provide appropriate evidence of equivalency of high school education. Typically, this will be documentation in the form of possession of a General Equivalency Diploma (GED) or written attestation by the superintendent of schools in the student’s public school district of residence that the student has completed an appropriate program of home instruction. Appropriate documentation is also needed to establish eligibility for financial aid. All home-schooled students should discuss their particular situation with financial aid and admissions counselors.
If an applicant is approved admission to Daemen College and is currently a student, it will be understood that such admission has been granted on a provisional basis until all final records have been reviewed and found to be in accordance with Daemen's admission requirements.
