Rose-Hulman has made an exception for standardized test score requirements for 2024. Students who do not submit standardized test scores will not be disadvantaged in consideration for admission to Rose-Hulman. Rose continues to embrace a holistic admission process and submitted standardized test scores are reviewed together with other significant attributes including rigor of high school curriculum, subject mastery, intellectual competency, and personal character.
Our students are passionate about science, math, and engineering. They accept the academic rigor of Rose-Hulman, work together collaboratively, and build a strong sense of community. They know the path isn’t easy, but the work leads to meaningful lives.
