College Admissions Testing

  • Many colleges require standardized test scores, the ACT or the SAT.  You may take one or both; colleges will look at the highest scores that you submit.  

    Registration deadlines are usually one month before the test date.  Register early to avoid a late fee and to ensure you get a seat at the testing center you desire.  

    The National Center for Fair and Open Testing (FairTest) maintains a list of colleges that are "test optional."  Visit for more information.
