Take the ACT or SAT

Make sure you register to take the ACT or SAT, especially if you didn’t like your earlier scores. You can have your scores sent directly to the colleges you’ve applied to by registering them during the test. You can also send them later via the College Board or ACT websites.

Register online for the ACT and SAT. You can set up an account at act.org for the ACT, and at collegeboard.org for the SAT.

Before you register, check with your counselor. You may qualify for fee waivers for both tests that are available for low-income juniors and seniors. Check with your school counselor for more details and help with arranging a fee waiver.

Does College Make $ense

Full-time workers in the U.S. who earned bachelor’s degrees are more satisfied with their jobs. 58 percent of college graduates and people with some college or associate degrees reported being “very satisfied” with their jobs, compared to 50 percent of high school graduates and 40 percent of people without a high school diploma.
