College Entrance Examinations



Undergraduate Program Entrance Examinations


Service members applying for college admission, an officer ascension program, a military-sponsored academy or professional program may be required to take a standardized test such as the ACT or SAT, as part of the admissions or program application.

Some school and military programs accept either test interchangeably; however, service members should check with their military education couselor prior to testing.

As you begin to think about college and creating the best application package possible, your admissions plan should begin with the question, "Which test should I take?"
