Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and American College Test (ACT)

Most four-year colleges and universities require an entrance or placement examination. Colleges and universities in the U.S. usually accept either the ACT (American College Test) or the SAT I (Scholastic Aptitude Test). Test scores can be improved by taking the test multiple times. Please consult with the college or university of your choice for specific testing requirements.

Some colleges/universities require the SAT II (subject test). Check with the Collegeboard or your selected college/university to see if they require the SAT II for admission. When college/universities require the Sat II tests they are measuring your ability in the areas of writing, mathematics and one area of your choice. Make a list of possible colleges/universities that you are considering and request your score to be sent to those schools. Deadlines are set for each test date. Late fees are assessed if it is past the deadline. There are additional charges to change your test date or location after you have registered.
