Temple is the first public research university in the Northeast to implement an option that allows applicants not to submit standardized test scores. “There is a strong correlation between socioeconomic status and standardized test scores,” said College of Education Dean Gregory Anderson. President Neil D. Theobald added that Temple is committed to providing access for talented and motivated students of all backgrounds. “By giving students more choices, we open doors to more first-generation students and those from underserved communities whose enormous academic promise may be overlooked by conventional measures of achievement,” he said.
