FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
When considering applications for admission, every four-year university in the USA will accept your scores from either the ACT or the SAT, if they consider SAT/ACT at all. In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic of, many universities have opted to go test-blind (don't consider SAT/ACT scores for admission) or test optional (will consider a score if submitted.) The College Board is no longer offering the SAT Subject Tests. They also no longer offer the SAT Essay. Check with your campus of interest. If sending, make sure that your campus of interest receives an official score report directly from the College Board or ACT after self-reporting on the application.
Check www.collegeboard.org and/or www.act.org for information on registration. You will need to upload a head-and-shoulders photo of yourself at the time you register for the SAT and ACT. Consult the website(s) for the most current information on dates and cost. For low-income families: Check with your high school counselor if you think you might qualify for a fee waiver, which waives the entire test fee.
