Testing is part of the journey beyond Kamiakin.

Many U.S. colleges require that undergraduate and graduate students submit standardized test scores as part of their application packages. Standardized tests provide a consistent way for a college to evaluate you and sometimes even help you choose the right courses. 

Most colleges require you to take one of the most common tests, the SAT or the ACT. Check with the colleges you plan to apply to for their testing requirements.

Most community colleges have open enrollment and don’t require standardized test scores. However, they will usually require placement tests. SAT or ACT scores may exempt you from placement tests. If you want to enroll in a selective program at a community college (nursing, computer science, law enforcement), then standardized test scores may be required. Later, if you transfer from a community college to a university or another school, test scores may be required.

Test Success Strategy:  Prepare, Study, Repeat
To take these tests, you should be armed with more than a No. 2 pencil. Both SAT and ACT testing organizations offer lots of resources to help you prepare and study. Both also offer preparatory tests you can take early. Your local library and bookstore have books that can help you prepare. And if you don’t do well the first time, don’t panic—you can retake the tests to try to raise your score.

Get Help to Pay
These tests all require registration fees that can vary depending on the test options you choose. Check with your high school counselor to see if you qualify for a fee waiver.
