Applications Are Test Optional

Freshman applicants for the fall 2023 term have the option of being reviewed with or without test scores, such as the ACT or SAT. This change is one of the ways S&T is responding to the impact of COVID-19.

Students who have previously requested an application review with test scores can request to be reviewed without test scores only if S&T has not already made an admissions decision. Students can submit their request to apply@mst.edu.

Application Deadline

It is best to apply early to ensure you get the most financial aid possible. The priority scholarship deadline for the fall semester is December 1, and the final scholarship deadline is February 1.
