2013 SAT/ACT Testing Deadlines for Regular Decision Applicants

Posted by Sybil St. Hilaire on Mon, Dec 09, 2013

SAT/ACT testing deadlines

In our last blogpost we shared the final chapter of Floor’s TestRocker journey. After studying with TestRocker she was able to increase her SAT score by 590 points. In the video above she talks a bit more about preparing for the SAT with TestRocker and her plan for applying to colleges.

Preparing for and getting a good score on the SAT is just one part of the college application process. Application deadlines for many colleges are quickly approaching. It’s important to have a sense of what the application requirement for each school is, and to make sure you have all the required materials, including your standardized test scores, submitted on time.

Around this time of year our students who are applying regular decision begin asking the following questions:

  1. Will my school accept a January SAT score or December ACT score?
  2. My school’s regular decision deadline is January 1st, can I take the SAT in January or the February ACT?

I wanted to bring you answers. Below is a list of 20 top rated colleges, whether they offer score choice*, and the last standardized testing date accepted for the 2013-14 application cycle.  You may find your school on the list below. If not, be sure to visit the admissions website for the schools on your list for more information.
