What is the SAT?

The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) is a globally recognized college admission test that lets you show colleges what you know and how well you can apply that knowledge.  It tests your knowledge of reading, writing and math — subjects that are taught every day in high school classrooms.

Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior year of high school, and almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admission decisions. (www.collegeboard.org)

SAT scores are just one of many factors that colleges consider when making their admission decisions.  High school grades are also very important.  In fact, the combination of high school grades and SAT scores is the best predictor of your academic success in college.

University / College SAT Requirements

Every college and university uses a different combination of criteria for admission.

Universities and colleges in the US report the mean average of their previous incoming freshmen year in order to determine approximate eligibility.

However, it is important to remember that the SAT is only ONE of the factors that universities look at during the admission process.

The following link at collegeboard.org : (College Board Big Future) may help students review the entrance criteria for the US universities and colleges, including SAT score statistics.  Through this link students are able to filter the 3897 higher education options they have in the US in order to find their “best fit” with the guidance of their counselors.

 ACS Athens is an SAT testing center (CEEB code: 738080).
