The ACT and SAT are required for admission to most colleges. Check out for list of colleges who do not require SAT or ACT for admission. Students sign up online to take the ACT and/or SAT.

Which Test Should I Take?

ACT, SAT, or both? Most colleges require a score from either the ACT or the SAT. Students do not need to take both tests, although some students choose to take both tests. Some students do better on the SAT while others do better on the ACT. How should you choose?

  •  The ACT science section can be helpful for students with good reasoning skills.

  • If you are a slow test-taker, you might want to consider the SAT because it gives you more time to answer each question.

  • If vocabulary is not your strong suit, the ACT might be a better choice since it does not test vocabulary like the SAT does.
