The American College Testing program (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is required of all entering freshmen. Scores from these instruments are used for academic advising. On a “need-to-know” basis, faculty should contact the Associate Dean of Academic Records to secure needed information from these tests, including educational and vocational plans, special educational needs and interests, advanced placement in high school, and high school extracurricular activities and college extracurricular plans.
