Entrance Test Dates and Fees

Most colleges require either the SAT® or ACT® entrance exam. However, out of an abundance of caution due to the coronavirus pandemic, some students were not able to take their exams as scheduled, or have chosen not to test for personal reasons. Therefore, many colleges and universities are offering a Test-Optional Policy for the SAT® or ACT® exams for the current academic school year. Check your school’s website for the most current updates on a possible Test-Optional Policy concerning entrance exams.

NOTE: College Board recognizes the impact that COVID-19 may have on students and their families’ economic situations these past few years. School counselors are encouraged to use their best professional judgment in identifying eligible students for SAT® fee waivers. If you are unsure if you qualify, please discuss your situation with your school counselor. Learn more about fee waivers at www.SAT.org/feewaivers.

Exam dates are scheduled and registration is ongoing, online and by phone for both SAT® - www.collegeboard.org; and ACT® - www.act.org.

NOTE: Beginning January 2021, the College Board will no longer offer SAT® Subject Tests. The optional essay portion is also being discontinued following the June 2021 administration. U.S. students who are currently registered for these sections will have their registration canceled and fees refunded automatically.
