EDUCATION & ENRICHMENT: What About the SAT and COVID-19?
Deacon John Wilson of West Angeles’ Education & Enrichment Program answers your questions about the SAT and ACT in light of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The West Angeles Education & Enrichment office has received many calls, texts, and emails about the SAT. Many families have expressed confusion and concern, due the recent cancellations of public events in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Here are the facts:
- The Educational Testing Service (ETS) – otherwise known as the “College Board”- has announced (on its website) the cancellation of the March 14th and May 2nd SAT.
- The June 6th SAT has NOT been canceled and will proceed as previously scheduled.
- The April 4th ACT was also canceled. The next ACT will be held on June 13th and July 18th.
- The recent Federal cancellation of State requirements for “Standardized Testing” at the K-12 school did not apply to the SAT or ACT.
In view of the above, you should have received a refund for the March & May SAT and the April 13th ACT. If not, call the SAT or ACT Customer Service Offices and let them know.
Contact the SAT at: (866) 756-7346;
Contact the ACT at: (319) 337-1270.
In addition, you must immediately register your youth for the June SAT or June/July ACT. PLEASE NOTE: The registration does NOT automatically roll over if the earlier test was cancelled. Finally, on a limited basis, West Angeles’ Education & Enrichment Program is offering ONLINE-Distance SAT Prep in partnership with The Princeton ReviewTM to replace our Prep for the June SAT. The pricing is very affordable and the class starts in mid-April. For registration information, please email my assistant at [email protected] and/or see the schedule at www.westa-eep.org. If you have a more specific or personal question, you can email me at [email protected].
