SAT/ACT Test Dates and Resources
The SAT and the ACT are exams colleges use for admission and course placement. Colleges will accept both with no preference. We recommend that students try both tests to see if they have a preference or if they perform better on one over another.
Students can compare their scores using a concordance chart (see link below). See the "SAT vs. ACT" flyer on the right for more information on format for these tests.
Students may begin to take these tests as early as they want. However, students may choose to wait to start taking the SAT after they receive their PSAT results late in December/early January of their junior and sophomore years, so that they can use those results to guide their preparation for upcoming SAT administrations.
Seniors who have not already taken the SAT/ACT their junior year may choose to take the earliest exams offered in the fall of their senior year to ensure they meet college application deadlines.
**COVID Update - Many colleges are going test optional for admissions. Be sure to check with each of your intended colleges to see what their policies are for admission, scholarships, and college placement. Some colleges are test optional for admission but not for scholarships. Students may still need to test to show college readiness with SAT/ACT or other assessments like the TSI.**
