Testing and Score Choice

Each college and university sets its own policies about what type of standardized testing, if any, they require. It is the student’s responsibility to research the requirements and follow through. Almost all students will take the SAT and ACT with Writing at least once, many will take either or both tests more than once. A website has compiled a list of campuses and their testing policies for easy use: http://www.prepmatters.com/ht/a/GetDocumentAction/i/65355. Please note that this is not an official document of the campuses, so please verify the information on each individual school website!

There is also a term that you should be familiar with, Score Choice. Score Choice is a score-reporting feature that gives students the option to choose the SAT scores by test date and SAT Subject Test scores by individual test that they send to colleges, in accordance with each institution's individual score-use practice. Some colleges and universities do not allow students to choose which test dates they send, the require applicants to send all test dates and scores. You can view the list above for Score Choice information, but remember to verify with the individual colleges and universities. 

CLEP

Some colleges and universities allow students to take CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) tests to earn college credit for 33 introductory-level college subjects. CLEP exams test mastery of college-level material acquired in a variety of ways and are accepted at over 2,900 campuses across the country. Each college sets its own policy: It decides which CLEP exams it will grant credit for and how many credits it will award. So contacting the school is the first step in determining if CLEP tests are a good option. To look up which colleges accept CLEP tests, decide which (if any) exams to take, and registering for exams, please visit the College Board website at: https://clep.collegeboard.org/started 

SAT Subject Tests

Subject Tests are hour-long, content-based tests that allow students to showcase achievement in specific subject areas where they excel. These are the only national admission tests where you choose the tests that best showcase your achievements and interests in a single subject area. Some highly selective colleges and universities require students to take Subject Tests as part of the application process. Some colleges also use Subject Tests to place students into the appropriate courses.

SAT Subject Tests allow you to differentiate yourself in the college admission process or send a strong message regarding your readiness to study specific majors or programs in college. In conjunction with your other admission credentials (your high school record, SAT scores, teacher recommendations, etc.), they provide a more complete picture of your academic background and interests.

There are 20 SAT Subject Tests in five general subject areas: English, history, languages, mathematics and science. To learn more about Subject Tests, registers, and take practice exams please visit: http://sat.collegeboard.org/about-tests/sat-subject-tests 

AP TESTS

Colleges and universities throughout the world offer credit and/or placement for qualifying Advanced Placement® exam scores. Information about AP credit and placement policies at many colleges and universities is available on the College Board's web site.

  • Go to www.collegeboard.com/ap/creditpolicy/
  • Type in the name of the college or university whose AP policy you want to view (or browse by letter of the alphabet).
  • You will see a link to the college's own web page that details its AP credit/placement policies and a statement by the college or university about their AP policy.
