Some degree and certificate programs in Pierpont Community & Technical College require applicants to provide American College Test (ACT) or Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). All students are encouraged to take the ACT or SAT, because scores on the test are used in placing students in English and Mathematics, for scholarships and loans, and in the academic counseling program. High school students are urged to take the test during their junior year. Financial aid applicants should take the test either during the summer prior to the beginning of the senior year, or on the September or October dates.
