Why Take the SAT?

Benefits of Taking the SAT

Opens Doors to College 

The SAT is an admission test accepted by all U.S. colleges, and the College Board has programs to encourage all students to take advantage of higher education.

College Application Fee Waivers

College application fees can really add up, but there's good news. Students who take the SAT or SAT Subject Tests using a test fee waiver can search through over 2,000 participating colleges and apply for free.

Scholarship Opportunities

The SAT connects students to programs that recognize academic excellence and award college scholarships.  Students who take the SAT can opt in to Student Search Service® to make their names and information available to scholarship programs as well as colleges.
