SAT/ACT-

Registration for the SAT and the ACT is done through an on-line registration system. We recommend that you take either the SAT or the ACT in the spring of the junior year, and then take one of the tests again in the fall of the senior year. Look at the test schedule well ahead of time to avoid paying late fees. Students who meet eligibility guidelines may qualify for a fee waiver. See Jill in the Career Center to request a fee waiver.

Accuplacer or College Placement Test-

The Accuplacer, which is also referred to as a College Placement Test, is required if you plan to attend a Community College. Each community college proctors an accuplacer or CPT. Please visit the web site of the college you are interested in to get specific dates and requirements. It's always a good idea to study for the test ahead.
