Many colleges have decided to no longer accept SAT/ACT scores sent directly from the applicant  €™s high school. It is the recommendation of the school counseling department that each student send official copies of test scores to the university directly from the College Board. Students may choose up to 4 colleges/universities at the time of registration for the test or on test day at no charge. After that point, you must go to the College Board or ACT website to request that official scores are sent to the schools to which one is applying. Please note: There is a $10 charge (per school) for requesting scores after registration/test day.

Students should sign up in the College and Career Center located in Main Guidance Office no later than 12:30 the day before the representatives' visit.
