How to Apply

Before you even pick up an application you will need to meet some basic admissions requirements, decide how many schools to apply to and learn when those applications must be sent.

College Admissions Testing

Almost every prospective college or university student is required to take the SAT or ACT (for undergraduates) or the GRE or GMAT (for graduates). International students who speak another language often must take an English proficiency test as well.
