DO NOW: Share and post about the #TestOptionalNOW campaign

Hi everyone, Thank you for signing our petition to call colleges and universities to go #TestOptionalNOW for the Class of 2021 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since we launched the campaign on Monday, many college and universities have announced their decision to go test-optional for the 2020-21 cycle, including: Anderson University (IN) Boston University (MA) Chestnut Hill College (PA) Concordia University (TX) Drury University(MO) Neumann University (PA) Portland State University (OR) Scripps College (CA) Tufts University (MA) University of Oregon (OR) Western Michigan University (MI) Quincy University (IL) University of the Cumberlands (KY) Northern Kentucky University (KY) This is incredible news, but so many colleges and universities have still not announced test-optional policies, including most of the nation’s major public state schools. Will you help us call more institutions to go #TestOptionalNOW by sharing this petition? As a reminder, we are calling on all colleges and universities to take immediate action to build a more equitable admissions process in light of COVID-19 by eliminating standardized testing requirements and adopting test-optional policies for all applicants to their institution during the 2020-2021 admissions cycle. We'd also love for you to join our Social Community Series call on the #TestOptionalNow campaign this Sunday, March 29 at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST to learn from experts about test-optional policies and plan to take action.

More soon,The Student Voice Team
