What will colleges do if I send more than one set of test scores?
Most colleges will combine your highest individual math, reading and writing scores from multiple tests. This includes Gonzaga, Seattle University and Washington State University.
Some colleges will take the highest overall test score. This includes the University of Washington.

What if I can’t afford to pay the test fees?
If you receive free or reduced-price lunch at school, you qualify for SAT and ACT fee waivers. You can use up to two SAT fee waivers and two ACT fee waivers between your junior and senior years. If you use an SAT fee waiver, you can also receive up to four college application fee waivers. Fee waivers are available from Ms. Pencheva in the Career Center.
