BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WTHR) — Some Indiana University's campuses will no longer require students to submit their standardized test scores for admission.

Those campuses include Bloomington, IUPUI, IUPUC, IU Fort Wayne, IU Kokomo, IU South Bend and IU Northwest.

IU East and IU Southeast are still reviewing it.

The change will begin in August of 2020 for students applying for the 2021 school year.

The idea is that GPA is a better indicator of how a student will perform. The change also eliminates issues with students who might not test well or be able to afford the same preparation for standardized tests as others.

Individual schools within IU could still require standardized test scores for admission into them.
