Rider is Test-Optional
SAT/ACT scores are not required for admission and most scholarships at Rider.
The strongest predictor of freshman success at Rider is the student's performance in college-preparatory, academic coursework. It's our belief that no one test should be a defining factor in your admission to Rider or your scholarship award - rather, standardized tests simply offer a snapshot of your talents as a student.
Therefore, we've joined hundreds of other respected colleges and universities nationwide in adopting this test-optional policy.
