OBHS SCHOOL CODE
How do I register for ACT or SAT tests?
- ACT or SAT sign-up is
YOUR responsibility. It is easiest to register online but
register-by-mail packets are available if needed. Come to Guidance
Office/Career Center for more info.
- Go to www.actstudent.org to register
for the ACT and to find information about test dates, registration
deadlines, etc. Make a note of the password information
associated with your account, as you will need it to access
practice tests, score reports, etc. To become familiar with
the ACT testing format, work through free practice tests online at
websites such as www.actstudent.org, www.get2college.org, and www.firstregional.org.
- Go to www.collegeboard.org to
register for the SAT. Make a note of the password information
associated with your account as you will need it to access practice
tests, check scores, etc. A limited number of practice tests are
available through the Guidance Office.
- Test fee waivers: If you
receive free or reduced school lunch, you can request up to two
waivers for ACT or SAT fees, to be used during your junior or
senior years of high school. Request a "test fee waiver" letter
from the school cafeteria and show your Social
Security card to the school ACT/SAT Coordinator. Please allow
at least two days before the registration deadline when requesting
a fee waiver.
- When you
register for the ACT or SAT, go ahead and have your scores reported
to as many colleges as you can - whether or
not you plan to apply for admission to that school - if there is
the slightest possibility you may apply for admission there. This
can save you money later in score reporting fees.
- OBHS includes your official ACT scores (if they have been
officially reported to our school) on the transcripts we send to
your college admissions offices. However, most colleges also need
your ACT or SAT score to be officially reported to them by the
testing organizations. If you did not request your scores to
be sent to a particular college at the time you registered for the
ACT or SAT, you may have to return to the testing corporation's
website to request they send your scores to that college, at your
