SAT and ACT Test Cancellations March - June 2020

Uncategorized May 22, 2020

The May and June SAT test dates have now officially been canceled. As reported over a week ago, the move towards at-home online testing options continues to accelerate, as the College Board and the ACT both confirm that such preparations are underway and will be ready to launch in the fall 2020 semester in the event that school closures continue. If schools and governments are open this summer, the College Board is "planning to make up for the loss of the spring testing dates by offering SAT exams every month through the end for the year, beginning in August, if in-person gatherings have been lifted".

 As of April 21, the ACT test dates on June 13 and July 18 have not yet been canceled although the ACT will be paying special attention to the CDC and local guidelines before making a final decision about the upcoming ACT test dates. It remains to be seen whether additional test sites could be added for the June and July ACT test dates to better accommodate the students who missed the April test administration.

 In the meantime, the test-optional movement continues to accelerate. In spite of new test optional policies, SAT/ACT test scores remain important if students want to have the most options.
