College Preparatory Materials
|Most colleges and universities require students to submit a score from either the ACT or the SAT. Students are encouraged to take the test for the first time around the middle of their junior year and no later than October of the senior year. SAT and ACT waivers are provided for those students who meet certain financial guidelines. One way to determine financial need is if the student qualifies for free or reduced school lunch. The fee waiver not only waives the cost of the test, but also gives the student the opportunity to submit applications (waiving application fees) to participating colleges.Numbers2 – Free Online Test Prep for ACT and SAT|
