March 20, 2020

UPDATE, 2/8/2021: This waiver will be in effect through academic year 2024-25.

From: Kristi Kirk, Provost and Executive Vice President

We are aware that college entrance exam administrators ACT and the College Board (SAT) have taken measures to postpone or reschedule upcoming testing dates in response to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). As a result, Concordia University Texas has decided to temporarily waive the ACT or SAT test requirement for admission. This change impacts incoming classes beginning Fall 2020 through Fall 2021.

In addition, the College of Nursing has made the decision to temporarily waive the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) for incoming nursing students applying for Summer 2020 and Fall 2020.

Concordia University Texas is a Christ-centered institution that cares about people.The office of admissions is committed to making Concordia University Texas as accessible to students as possible. We will work with you to make sure you are able to take full advantage of a higher education. We are here to serve you, so please reach out to the office of admissions and they will guide you through the enrollment process at CTX. We appreciate you, our CTX families, as we navigate this unprecedented time together.
