Local News

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The SAT and ACT have cancelled of their spring tests.  

This has led many schools to waiving these tests due the students not being able take the test.   

College Board canceled any SAT test through the end of June. They have allowed students who were already registered for one of these tests to either receive a refund or switch their registration to August, September, or October for free. In addition, the class of 2021 will have early registration access for the fall tests if they have not previously taken the SAT.  

The Act rescheduled it’s April 4 test for June 13 and allowed students register for April 4 to reschedule to any future test day for free or receive a refund. Starting in the late fall of 2020, ACT is introducing a new option that will allow students to take the ACT at home. This will be dome on a computer through remote proctoring as part of its national testing program. 

At Troy University, they are only using the student’s transcript when they are considering accepting students.  

This seems to be the trend at most Alabama universities. At this time, Troy University, Wallace College, Alabama A & M University, Alabama State University, and Auburn University have all waived the tests. Also, the University of Mobile has waived the test for applicants with high school GPAs of 2.75 or higher. Beyond Alabama, many universities around the United States have waived the tests.
