College Admissions Tests

 

PSAT:

At Post Falls High School, in the fall of the sophomore year, students are offered a free opportunity to take the PSAT as practice for the SAT.

 

College bound students may also take the PSAT test again at their own cost, during October of their junior year. This test lets the students know how they compare to other college bound students as well as giving the students practice in taking the college entrance tests. The junior year PSAT is also used in the determination of National Merit Scholarship Competition.

 

SAT/ACT:

Post Falls High School students are required to take a college admissions test during the spring of their junior year as part of Idaho graduation requirements. Each student is provided one free opportunity to take the SAT (typically in their junior year).

 

If students wish to take a college admission test again at their own cost, they may do so in the fall of their senior year.  Either the ACT or SAT is accepted by most colleges and universities.  Check on college or university web sites to determine which college admission tests are accepted and if any specific subject tests are required.
