If any portion is incomplete, not included or late, the application will not be considered.
If you have not been able to take either the SAT, PSAT, or ACT due to COVID-19 restrictions, please still submit your application.

You and your parent or guardian must sign the Certification and Release Authorization on the back page of the application form.
