College Admissions Exams

  • The PSAT is administered in October in school, and helps prepare 9th and 10th grade students for admissions exams.  

    Most colleges and universities require applicants to take either the SAT or ACT exam.  For example, scores are needed to apply to both the CSU system and UC systems before the application deadline of November 30. 
    It is recommended that students take the exams in the 11th grade. SAT and ACT exams are administered at local high schools on specific Saturdays though out the school year.  If students register and take the exams early, there are more opportunities to retake the tests to improve scores. 
    RCEA students may qualify for a fee waiver.  See Ms. McCormick for details.
