Standardized Testing

Four-year Colleges and Universities -  Almost all of these schools require students to take and submit scores for one of the standardized tests (ACT, SAT, and/or SAT II).  There are a few exceptions to this, however, so we encourage you to investigate the admission requirements for those schools that you are interested in. provides you with a list of schools that do not require standardized test scores for admission. 

The purpose of these tests is to assess students general educational development and their preparedness for college-level work.  Because these are national tests, colleges are able to compare your score with scores from students around the country.  These comparisons give colleges a better idea of what your grade point average and class rank mean in comparison to what your peers are doing nationally.


Community and Technical Colleges - These schools require students to take the Accuplacer placement exam. However, a students'  ACT or PLAN test scores may exempt them from this testing requirement.


Roosevelt's school code number to use when registering for testing:  241-685
