SAT (and/or ACT) test scores are required by four-year colleges. Student-Athletes looking to move forward from high school to a four-year college be sure to take the SAT (and/or ACT) test more than once. The newly revised SAT test is in use now. Fee waivers are available for students with financial need. See your high school counselor for assistance. If you qualify for a fee waiver for the SAT/ACT you may also qualify for the NCAA registration fee waiver. Some (but not all) colleges also require the SAT Subject test especially for highly competitive majors of interest such as engineering. Check college admission requirements. When you take the test more than once it provides an opportunity for you to improve your score in each test category. The highest score from each test category is used for college admissions. Example: If you take the SAT test twice and you score higher in Math in test #1 then that score is used. If you score higher in Reading in test #2 then that score is used. Free practice tests are available. Also, the PSAT is often taken first as a preliminary test.
