Applying to College
Make Your Application Stand Out!
According to The National Center for Fair and Open Testing, more than 1,000 accredited colleges and universities are test optional and will not be requiring the SAT or ACT scores, or portions of the test, for their admission process. For the latest list and more information, click here.
As Colleges are working harder to have a more holistic approach to their admission process, character and life skills have become an increasingly important part of the college admission process. In addition to academic strength, athletic or artistic talent, and/or community service efforts, colleges are working to figure out ways to assess character and life skills such as leadership, critical thinking, creativity, and more all within the admission process.
