  • Important Registration Information

    SAT

    Every student in the junior class are registered for the SAT test, free of charge, by their School Counselor in the Spring of their Junior year and pending approval for Fall of their Senior year.

    To take advantage of the free SAT registration, see your counselor. Do not submit your registration without seeing you counselor first.

    If you sign up for the SAT independently via your collegeboard account fees will be applied.

  • Fee Waiver

    Some students may be eligible for a fee waiver. In the past, eligibility for SAT & ACT fee waivers was determined by participation in the Federal Free & Reduced Meals Program. This year, there is no application for this program, as the district is providing meals for everyone. Therefore students must now bring in documentation to receive test fee waivers.

    How Do I Know If I'm Eligible?
    Detailed information can be found on the Official Website for SAT fee waivers. A summary is on "Step 1" below.

    One of the easiest ways to determine eligibility is if your parent's annual family income falls within the Income Eligibility Guidelines set by the USDA.

    How Many Fee Waivers Can a Student Receive?
    1. 2 SAT registrations
    2. 2 SAT subject tests registrations

    What Does a Fee Waiver Cover?
    1. Cost of the test
    2. Additional 4 score reports to send to colleges of your choice

    How Much Do I Save?

  • What I Need From You: Step 3

    Plan Ahead!
    Most SAT/SAT Subject tests will fall during the busiest time of the year (finals, AP tests, etc.) Use the College Calendar to make sure you meet registration, and testing deadlines

    Most Tier 1 universities will require/recommend a Subject Test. If so, you should take it to increase your chances of admission.

    "Recommend" usually means "required."
