• Standardized testing is not required at all colleges after 2020. However, some colleges are once again asking for test scores. 


    You need to be sure you find out from the colleges you are considering about their requirements in regards to considering the ACT or SAT test scores.  

    Test Blind- Means the test will not be considered for any reason

    Test Optional - Means the test score can only HELP you but not hurt you

    Test Required- Means you are required to have a test score for either admissions, and/or scholarships.
