•                                             SAT/ACT/TSI Testing Information

     

    Most colleges will accept either the SAT or ACT and will use the highest score among all tests taken. You will need to check with the college of your choice regarding their entrance requirements.

    If you go to a community college, you only need the TSI and you do not need to take the SAT or the ACT.

    If you later transfer to a university, you will be a transfer student and will not need the SAT or ACT—if you have enough transfer hours.

    ACT and SAT recommend that students take their tests at least twice. You don’t have to take both of them, but you may if you want to try both assessments. You may register on-line at the websites indicated below, in the counselor’s office, or on your own.

    Similarities:

    • Colleges accept both assessments.
    • Calculators on the math sections may be used.
    • The student essay is persuasive writing. Examinees are presented with an issue relevant to high school students. Two different perspectives on the issue are provided. The examinee may choose to support one of these perspectives or to develop a response based on their own perspective.
