ACT/SAT Information

The SAT and ACT are more similar now than ever. However, the scores and the way schools view them can be challenging. Many of you will need to take both if you are applying to multiple schools.

ACT & SAT fee waivers are available to low-income 11th and 12th-grade students in the U.S. or U.S. territories. U.S. citizens living outside the country may be able to have test fees waived.
