HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Yale and Quinnipiac universities in Connecticut have joined a growing list of schools that allow applicants to self-report SAT and ACT test scores, rather than getting those results from the organizations that administer the entrance exams.

The policy is designed to allow students to apply to multiple schools without worrying about having to pay fees to have those scores sent out.

Quinnipiac announced the change Thursday. Gregory Eichhorn, the school's vice president for admissions, says once a student is admitted, the university will verify the scores with the College Board or ACT and can rescind admission if it finds the scores were falsely self-reported.

The National Association for College Admission Counseling says the idea has exploded over the last two years, with more than 110 schools now allowing self-reported scores.
