Tom Callan reportingWake Forest University in North Carolina recently dumped the SAT entrance requirement, but standardized tests are not about to die on the academic vine at the University of Utah.
"We are an ACT state, so we require, we like the ACT," said Nancy Trevino, University of Utah's senior associate director of admissions.
But Trevino says the school will accept the SAT. "As far as we're concerned, we use them for placement at the University of Utah into classes, we use them to determine if the student is admissible," she said.
A year ago, the SAT included a writing section on the test. That portion is not used for admission at the University of Utah.
