    About the SAT & ACT

    The SAT and ACT are standardized tests widely used for college admissions. Four-year colleges often require applicants to submit their SAT or ACT score (some colleges do not).

    Many schools also require SAT subject tests. Make sure you know if a university requires a "supplement," which is generally listed on the application's website. Because high school grading systems (and GPAs) can vary by school, a standardized test can provide a more objective metric for consideration. Including scores from the SAT or ACT exam in your student application can help show schools of interest that you are academically prepared for college-level work.

    Do community colleges require SAT or ACT scores? Short answer: most community colleges across the US do not. This includes the SAT and the ACT. Community colleges are usually open enrollment. That means as long as you have a high school diploma or a GED, you are eligible to apply. Their application process is also very simple.

    While many colleges and universities have revised their testing requirements so as to accommodate students during the COVID-19 pandemic, make sure you review each school's admissions criteria, as some schools still require an SAT/ACT score and/or SAT subject tests.
