Do Colleges Require the Writing Portion of the ACT?

SAT Subject Tests

In some cases, colleges require two or three SAT Subject Test scores for admission. Up to three Subject Tests can be taken on a single test date. The test is usually taken around the time a coures finishes (for example, a junior who is taking AP Chemistry may elect to take the Chemistry Subject Test in May or June, as the school year ends). To determine what Subject Tests are available on any given test date, use this link. Or paste in this URL: https://sat.collegeboard.org/register/sat-subject-test-dates

Seal of Biliteracy

Students are able to test for world language proficiency and receive a Seal of Biliteracy on their high school transcript. For more information, go to this link, or paste in this URL: https://sat.collegeboard.org/register/sat-subject-test-dates
