Stay Current with SAT/ACT Exam Schedules
Get the Latest Updates on Cancelled, Rescheduled, and Added Test Dates
The College Board, the ACT, and colleges and universities across the US announced a number of changes in mid April that will impact the 2020 college admissions process and beyond.
1. The June SAT and SAT Subject Tests are officially cancelled.
The SAT will resume testing in August and plans to offer test administrations once monthly through the remainder of the year. Students will be able to register for these exams in May. Should students not return to school in the fall, the SAT will provide an at-home testing solution. Check the College Board’s website for updated announcements.
2. As of April 17th, the ACT still plans to run the June and July national test administrations. An at-home, remote proctoring option will roll out in late fall/early 2020.
The ACT plans to administer the exam on both June 13th and July 18th. They have also added June 20th as a makeup date for the June 13th exam and July 25th as a makeup date for the July 18th exam. Additionally, the ACT announced that they will be prepared to offer an at-home, remotely proctored version of the ACT beginning late fall/early winter 2020. Please visit the ACT website for additional details.
3. More than two dozen colleges and universities have adopted test optional policies for the upcoming admissions cycle.
Though the change is becoming more popular and we expect to see more colleges offering this in the near future, not every college has implemented a test optional policy. Families should check with their prospective colleges to confirm each institution’s policy as they navigate the admissions process.
