Application timeline

Standardized Test Requirements

Viterbo is seeking to admit students who rank in the top half of the academic performance range as measured by standardized assessments and class rank. A university entrance assessment score report (ACT or SAT) is required. When a student seeks admission with one or more of the measured assessments (rank, ACT, or SAT) that is not in the top half of the peer grouping for that student, the director of admission may refer that student to the admission committee for further review and consideration. Students with a strong college-prep background are considered well prepared if they have been able to maintain the grade average that their school recommends for the college bound.
