Most Colleges/Universities require students to take either the ACT or SAT for admission. 
  • Most schools accept either test. 
  • Check with your colleges to see if they require the optional writing/essay parts of the tests
  • Colleges want you to send them all of your scores, not just what you consider your best. 
  • Hint: Save money and have your scores sent to four colleges for free when you sign up for the ACT/SAT. Sending scores after you test adds $12 per report for the ACT and $11.25 for the SAT. 
  • While most Westwood students opt for the SAT, many of our students score better on the ACT.
