TAMS 2020-2021 Admissions Calendar of Events

July 20, 2020

TAMS Application Profile Opens

Please note:  Due to the global health crisis, all educational institutions and programs have made adjustments to their “ways of doing business.”  TAMS acknowledges that prospective applicants’ may not have opportunities to take and earn a satisfactory score on the SAT or ACT due to unpredictable health conditions in their city and/or region. Therefore, do not delay submitting an application to TAMS simply because the boxes reserved for an SAT/ACT score are blank.  The TAMS Admissions team expects applicants to submit a score report when health conditions permit an applicant to take one or both of the tests, but no applicant will be declined admission to TAMS solely on the basis of not having an SAT/ACT score.  Conversely, applicants who are able to take the SAT/ACT and submit score(s) due to their physical geography should not assume any advantage over applicants who are unable to submit a score(s).
