Scores provided by your high school

ACT and SAT scores affixed to and part of your high school transcript are considered official by Marquette.

Superscoring

For students submitting a standardized test score, Marquette will use a superscore (a new composite created by using the highest testing section scores from multiple ACT or SAT testing dates) when reviewing a file for admission. 

Official and unofficial scores

Scores are considered official if sent directly from the testing agency or if included on your high school transcript. Unofficial ACT or SAT scores will NOT be used to process an admission application. An admission decision will not be given until an official copy is received by the admissions office (unless a student applies test-optional). Copies of a student's score report, faxed scores, electronic score reports and all other scores not submitted directly from a testing agency or printed on a high school transcript are considered unofficial.
