About the ACTACT and SAT

The ACT Assessment test is an admissions requirement at some colleges. The instrument consists of four academic tests that measure academic development in English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science Reasoning. The Assessment provides scores on the four tests, a composite score, and seven sub scores which provide more detailed information concerning an individual's academic development. Calculators are permitted but not required.

About the SAT

The SAT scores are used as a college admission requirement and student placement instrument. SAT scores provide colleges with a way to compare academic preparation and abilities of students who apply for admission. SAT, when used in conjunction with high school grades and class rank, serves as a good predicator of academic success in the first year of college.

DANTES funds one administration at a DANTES Test Center, for eligible military service members, on either the SAT or the ACT Assessment. For additional information about testing at DANTES Test Centers see your education advisor.

Military Funding for ACT and SAT

DANTES funds one administration at a DANTES Test Center, for eligible military service members, on either the ACT Assessment or the SAT. Check the Directory of Education Centers to find out if your local DANTES education center provides the exam.  DANTES Test Centers do not schedule SAT administrations in July and August as the SAT Program shuts down their scoring system in late summer to prepare for national testing in October. We recommend that you use the ACT during this period.
