    Colleges and universities across the country will accept results from either the ACT or the SAT for college admissions. Over 1,000 colleges and universities have adopted a test-optional admissions policy. To view the list, go to http://www.fairtest.org/university/optional.

    The State of Michigan uses the SAT as part of its testing program for all juniors. SAT scores from this testing date in April of junior year may be used for college admission applications.
    Advanced Placement Tests, if a student scores well, can be used to earn college credit or waive  certain college classes. Individual colleges and universities handle AP credits differently.
