Class Room Board High school SAT and ACT scores have a big impact on your APS eligibility.

Take the test early, and make sure you have your scores sent directly to your high school. Your high school must receive the scores before high school graduation.

 Sending scores directly to the high school Minimize
SAT Online Registration: Include your high school code when you register. Your scores will be sent about five weeks after the test.

ACT Online Registration: List your high school and check the "YES" box to authorize ACT to release your scores. Your scores will be sent 3-8 weeks after the test.

2014-2015 Test Dates

SAT (dates below are anticipated, not final)


* These test dates do not allow adequate time for test scores to be recorded prior to high school graduation. High school seniors should take earlier tests in order for the scores to be considered for APS qualification.


What about WorkKeys?

If you know of a career and technical education certificate that leads to your career goals, you have another option. You can qualify for a Career and Technical Education (CTE) APS using WorkKeys scores. The CTE APS can be used for attendance in a career and technical education certification program, but not for a degree program. The CTE APS curriculum requirements and award levels are the same as the collegiate APS award, with the determining factor for the level awarded being the students GPA. A combined WorkKeys score of 13 (with no score lower than 4) meets the test score requirements for the CTE APS award. Visit the Department of Education’s WorkKey’s page to learn more about the WorkKeys test.

By qualifying with an ACT or SAT score, you will be eligible to pursue a certificate or a degree program. Download the APS Eligibility Progress Checklist for your class year to review the full requirements for either the Collegiate or the CTE Award.
