Standardized Testing

The SAT & ACT

Standardized testing can be one of the most stressful components of the college application process for some students. In order to alleviate some of this stress, it is important to prepare well in advance and be aware of all of the resources available to assist students with their SAT/ACT experience (before, during, and after the test!). Please see below for some of these resources, and be sure to reach out to the College Adviser with any questions.

 

Important Note: Many colleges, including Penn State, will not require SAT/ACT scores for Summer/Fall 2021.

Check your school's admissions webpage for updates.
