    Which colleges require the SAT or ACT for the college admissions process?

    NOTE: This list includes bachelor degree granting institutions that do not require recent U.S. high school graduates to submit ACT/SAT results. As the end notes indicate, some schools only exempt students who meet minimum grade or class rank criteria; others use test scores solely for placement purposes. Please check with the school's admissions office for details.

    • While some colleges don't require the test, they may require it to be eligible for merit-based scholarships.
    • If it's "optional" and you don't include it, that means the other aspects of your application become more important, including the classes you have taken, your essays, and the activities and volunteer work you have done while in high school. 
    • The test results can sometimes also be used for other things, such as placement into freshman level college courses, national, state, or local level scholarships, etc. 

    IN ORDER TO TAKE THE SAT OR ACT, STUDENTS MUST REGISTER FOR THE TEST THROUGH THEIR TEST SPECIFIC WEBSITES. SEE BELOW FOR LINKS, TEST DATES, AND THE TESTS OFFERED AT HRVHS.
