Vanderbilt University Admissions Hey Caitlyn, thanks for your question! We do require that you submit at least one of these (either SAT or ACT) standardized tests taken with the writing portion. Many students find that they perform better on one examination, and therefore send in that score. That being said, we do not have a preference for one test over the other! If you would like to send scores from both tests, you are welcome to do so, and if you have one score that is stronger and you would like to submit it only, you are also welcome to do that!
