    SUNY MESSAGE REGARDING SAT/ACT TESTING:

    We are writing to announce SUNY's decision to temporarily suspend SAT/ACT testing requirements for rising high school seniors intending to enroll at a SUNY bachelor’s degree-granting campus for the 2021-2022 academic year. This temporary change of admission eligibility requirements applies to the spring 2021, fall 2021, and spring 2022 cycles only.

    SUNY will maintain its longstanding commitment to holistic review of student applicants that includes grades, program of study, exam scores, academic achievements, non-academic achievements, and other activities that allow for the evaluation of the potential success of a candidate for admission.

    We trust that this temporary change in testing requirements will remove a potential barrier for students during these uncertain times.

    Here are some tips for SAT/ACT preparation.

    One Week Before

    Gradually taper off your studying, but review areas of weakness to boost your confidence.

    Eat healthy and get at least eight hours of sleep each night.

    One Day Before

    Don’t study. Cramming is unlikely to help.

    Relax your brain so you can tackle the test with a clear mind.

    Put enough gas in the car to get to the test site.
