For Fall 2017 First-Time Freshman Entry: 

Beginning in March of 2016, the College Board began administering a redesigned SAT.  If you are an applicant seeking admission to Delaware Valley University for Fall 2017, you may submit the pre-2016 versions of the SAT and/or the redesigned SAT. If you submit results from the redesigned SAT, the essay portion of the redesigned SAT will not be required. Similarly, if you choose to submit the ACT, the optional writing test will not be required.

Delaware Valley University will superscore the redesigned SAT and ACT.  However, we will not superscore sub-scores from the previous SAT with the redesigned SAT (March 2016).

DelVal will use the Total Score (Evidence-Based Reading and Writing + Math) for admission and scholarship decisions.

Required Documentation

Candidates for undergraduate admission should submit the following documentation to receive an admission decision:

  • Official high school transcript or General Equivalency Diploma (GED)
  • Official SAT and/or ACT standardized test scores (SAT Code: 2510/ACT Code:3551)
  • A letter of recommendation from an academic teacher or school counselor (First-Year Applicants only)
  • A personal essay of at least 250 words (First-Year Applicants only)

After receiving a completed admission application and all necessary academic records, we make every effort to notify candidates of their admission decision in a timely fashion.

Families involved in home-study programs are urged to contact the director of admission at 215.489.2211 for further information.
