SARASOTA, Fla. — New College of Florida applauds the State University System Board of Governors for approving the Classic Learning Test (CLT) as an admissions test alternative to the ACT and SAT.

Students can register for the CLT through New College at apply.ncf.edu/portal/clt-reg to receive a code waiving the $59 test administration fee.
“New College has a history of educating highly motivated students from all backgrounds, including home schooled students and classically educated students who find a range of tests useful for their unique methods and values,” said New College Interim President Richard Corcoran. “Adding the CLT to our accepted entrance examinations creates more educational choice and freedom in the undergraduate admissions process and we look forward to meeting more families and students as we expand and grow.”
“New College has been a wonderful partner and public advocate for CLT,” said Jeremy Tate, CEO of CLT. “We’re thrilled to see public universities valuing a test that considers students’ intellectual capability and aptitude over test-taking ability. CLT removes barriers to success students from some educational backgrounds face when confronted with the Common Core-based framework of the other exams.”
