SAT / ACT Testing Information 2019-2020
The Institutional SAT or ACT is an actual SAT or ACT available for incoming students on many college campuses for admission purposes. This test is a good option for students who need additional opportunities to take the SAT or ACT prior to the admissions cycle in hopes of reaching the admission requirements to a particular university. Students who are interested in taking the test should call the university's testing center to see if it is available. Some advantages to taking this test are quick score response time and small testing environment. The main disadvantage is student scores are only valid at the particular university where the test was taken, and scores do not appear on the student's national SAT or ACT records.
