PSAT, SAT and ACT Information

You should be able to obtain registration bulletins from a local high school, community college or a public library. The registration bulletins list the centers and the dates. Please check them for the center most convenient for you.

It is important for Juniors (11th graders) to take the PSAT test, as there are scholarship opportunities based on the results. Most notably, the National Merit Scholarship program uses the PSAT as their benchmark. Ask a local high school for registration.

The Internet is by far your best source for information on scholarships and financial aid. Putting in key words such as “scholarship,” or “college tuition help” and the like should gain you a wealth of information.
