Students are not required to take a ACT or SAT test for general admission to the college, but we will accept ACT or SAT scores for academic advising and placement purposes if they are within the last two years. Most degree-seeking students to the college will take a placement test if they do not have ACT or SAT test scores on file that place them into college level classes. Selective health program evaluation does require students to have an ACT or SAT to be considered for most selective health majors. However, students don’t need to have an ACT or SAT test to be a pre-health major and begin taking general education classes or to take classes to “complete their file” for evaluation.
