COLLEGE TESTING (PSAT, SAT, ACT, AP)

ACT: 

  • We are testing the ACT here at Tampa Prep throughout the fall. If you do not see the testing date you want, email Rosa Harwell at rharwell@tampaprep.org.
  • The MyACT is open for registration and is continually being updated as changes arise. Common questions are answered here.
  • ACT will send updates to registrants about cancellations, but you can also view them here.

SAT:

  • Updated every 3 hours, this page will list the SAT Test Center Closures.
  • The late registration fee has been waived for the September 26 and October 3 SAT test dates.
  • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the College Board has expanded its distribution of electronic fee waiver codes to school counselors, test coordinators, and community-based organizations to make it easier for students to access SAT fee waivers.
  • SAT and SAT Subject Test Administration Updates

For the very latest up-to-date information about the ACT and SAT, keep an eye on updates posted by the ACT and the College Board.
