Do I need to take the SAT or ACT????

 

*If you are planning on attending a 4 year college or university, you must take the SAT and/or ACT

*It is a good idea to take both tests at least once

*You should take each test with the optional writing section at least once (colleges will want to see how you perform on the writing section)

*If you are attending a community college, these tests are NOT required if you plan on completing your Associates Degree

*If you are going to start at a community college and then transfer out before graduation, you will need to have these test scores

Important Testing Day Reminders:
*Students must bring their admission ticket and a valid form of identification with them.
*Students must bring their own calculators. The test site does NOT provide them.
*Cell phones and any other electronic devices are NOT allowed in the testing room!
