Mount Saint Joseph is offering any junior at MSJ the option to take the SAT at school on Wednesday, March 24, 2021. It is not required.
Taking the SAT (or ACT, an alternative standardized test) continues to be an important component of the admissions and scholarship consideration processes at most universities. Due to COVID-19, SAT requirements may have changed for some universities, including for those students who plan to apply for admission in the fall of 2021. It is recommended that you check with your colleges of choice for guidance on current standardized test requirements.
The SAT administration will begin at 8:00 a.m., the normal start time for classes. Students only have the option to take the SAT without the essay, which is the version of the exam accepted by a large majority of colleges and universities.
Registration for the SAT is open through Friday, January 22. No registrations can be accepted after January 22. The cost for the SAT $55.00.
Students will be finished with testing at approximately 12:00 p.m.
Students who are approved by the College Board for 50% extended time will complete a pre-administration process before the test, and will finish the exam at approximately 1:15 p.m. Students who are approved for 100% extended time will take the exam over two days and finish testing during the morning hours of Thursday, March 25. The Director of Special Programs coordinates the documentation and testing administration for all students with College Board-approved accommodations.
