Tests directly related to college admissions are the SAT and the AMERICAN COLLEGE TEST (ACT). They are given several times a year on our campus. Students from seventh grade and above can take these tests.
In the process of choosing and applying for a college or university, students consider a number of factors: e.g., location, size, academic challenge, co- and extra-curricular opportunities, special services, types of students attending, costs related to any financial aid which may be provided, and so forth.
