Most colleges require a college entrance test as a part of their admission requirements - American College Test (ACT) or Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and sometimes up to three Achievement Tests. These tests are usually taken in the spring or summer of the junior year in high school.
Students can take these tests as many times as needed. There is a fee charged for taking these tests. Local testing sites include Illinois State University, Illinois Wesleyan University, Bloomington High School and Normal Community High School. General information and registration materials for these tests are available in the Counseling Offices.
American College Test (ACT) - The ACT is required by most public colleges and community colleges in Illinois. Many private schools and schools out of state will accept it also. (If in doubt regarding which test to take, check the catalog of the school in which you are interested.)
The PSAE test includes the ACT test and is administered to high school juniors every year.
Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) - Most private schools require the SAT. Check the college catalog to see if this test is required.
