Aalto University’s Bachelor’s programmes will accept both SAT and ACT tests in the 2022 admissions round

Starting from the 2022 admissions round, Aalto University has decided to additionally accept the ACT test to the programmes offered in English that have previously accepted only the SAT test.

The applicant can choose either of the tests: SAT or ACT, at any of their test locations. In addition to the test result, the applicant must have or be in the process of completing in the Spring 2022 a qualification, which gives eligibility to university-level studies. It is also possible to apply to the bachelor's programme offered in Finnish in the field of Business and Economics with the SAT or ACT test result.   

If the applicant completes both tests, or retakes one of the tests, the best valid score that has been submitted to Aalto University through the test organizer’s system will be taken into consideration. The ACT test score will be converted into a SAT test score. The full admission criteria for the bachelor's programmes offered in English will be updated at latest by 1st of October 2021 on our website
 
We will accept both the SAT and ACT test for the admission to the following study options: 

  • Chemical Engineering 
  • Computational Engineering 
  • Data Science 
  • Digital Systems and Design 
  • Economics 
  • International Business 
  • Quantum Technology 
  • Kauppatieteet (offered in Finnish only)

 
*SAT/ACT is not accepted for the study option of Design (in the field of art and design) 

The SAT/ACT test result needs to arrive at Aalto University at latest by 1 May 2022 when applying to the programmes offered in English and at latest by 14 June 2022 when applying to the programme in the field of Business and Economics offered in Finnish.

SAT Subject test in Mathematics, which is no longer offered by College Board, is not required for the Bachelor's programme in Science and Technology in the 2022 admissions.
