Standardized Tests

All candidates for admission are required to take either the SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT.  Candidates should schedule the SAT Tests or ACT to allow at least one month between the date and the appropriate application deadline. Students must request that official test-score reports be sent directly to the College from the testing agency.

Arrangements for taking the College Board or ACT Program examinations are made directly with the testing agency, and the responsibility for completing these arrangements rests with the candidate. Application to take the tests must be filed approximately four weeks in advance of the examination. Candidates are urged to fill out the descriptive questionnaire associated with the tests. We recommend that applicants submit all SAT and ACT scores from all test dates.

Information concerning test dates, application fees, test-result reports, testing procedures, sample questions and special administration of the tests may be obtained from the testing agencies. Inquiries should be sent to the College Board for the SAT or The American College Testing Program for the ACT.
