While we recognize that this test can help gauge whether a student will succeed in our challenging, hands-on programs, we know there are other ways to prove your capabilities that are equally telling. Whether it’s your previous academic history or recent performance on a math assessment, we will consider a variety of performance indicators to ensure that you can effectively manage the demands of Seattle U’s online business programs.
