Registering for the October SAT

If you're planning on taking the SAT on October 5th, remember: September 6th is your last day to register before incurring late fees. If you're taking the October ACT, you've got some time. September 27th is the deadline for registering for the October ACT sitting. Remember, there is no need for students to take both the SAT and ACT. Virtually all four-year colleges now accept either test. Familiarize yourself with both tests and take the one with which you feel most comfortable.
