College Entrance exams are designed to measure a student’s ability to do college level work and are required by most four year colleges and some two year colleges. By reviewing a standardized set of test scores for every student applying to a college, the admissions personnel are able to compare students from different states, schools, and academic backgrounds.
Online registration is the fastest and easiest way to register. You will need a digital photo, credit card (to pay for the test) and an e-mail address (for confirmation). If your student is on free or reduced lunch, have them see their School Counselor for a fee waiver that will allow them to take an SAT and an ACT . This waiver will allow them to take 2 free tests for the SAT and the ACT.
When registering for the SAT and ACT, use CCHS code 331-375. By using this code, you ensure that the high school will receive a copy of the results for your cumulative folder. It is your responsibility to direct the testing organizations to send your official test scores to the colleges you are interested in applying to.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO PICK 4 FREE SCORE REPORTS TO BE SENT TO YOUR TOP 4 SCHOOLS (EVEN IF YOU ARE STILL UNSURE) FOR FREE. AFTER THE "WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY" CLOSES FOR THIS, YOU HAVE TO PAY $12 A SCHOOL TO SUBMIT. EVERY TIME YOU TAKE A NEW TEST, YOU CAN CHANGE THE SCHOOLS AS NEEDED DURING THAT "WINDOW" AND THEY WILL SEND ALL TEST DATE SCORES. BOTH SAT AND ACT TEST SITES HAVE THIS OPTION.
