CHU admits students based on superscores for both the ACT and SAT, which has been recognized as best practice. Research conducted by the ACT has confirmed that superscores are just as strong a predicator, if not stronger, of how students will perform at the collegiate level than other scoring methods. Superscoring takes the highest scores for each section across multiple SAT or ACT tests and section retests, resulting in a "super" composite score that will, in most cases, be higher than the composite score of any individual test taken.

**Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are also offering, free of charge, two online assessments, the Degrees of Reading Power (DRP) and the Questar Mathematics Test that may be taken in lieu of the ACT or SAT. Students may sign up for these tests through the SOMS application portal after submitting their application.
