Ashland Prep has teamed up with West Coast Elite to provide a free ACT practice test to WCE student-athletes on Saturday, January 30, 2021 at 10:00 am PST.

The registration deadline is Sunday, 1/21 at 11:59 pm PST.

The test materials will be mailed to your address via USPS Priority mail and taken by your student online via Zoom with our live, online proctors on the test date noted above in order to simulate the real testing experience.

After the test, you will receive your student’s detailed score report and personalized feedback about your student’s results via email from Ashland Prep’s tutoring staff.

Due to COVID-19, nearly all colleges are test-optional for the class of 2022. Test-optional simply means that colleges will consider SAT or ACT scores if submitted, but no longer require these test results as part of the application process. For your student, this means that scores can only help, not hurt, your student’s chances in the college admissions process. More information can be found below in our FAQ.

To register, please fill out the requested information below and then click “Sign me up!” You will receive an email confirmation within 48  hours of submitting. Please be sure to check your spam folder for updates from us!  You may also follow up with any questions or requests for different practice test dates to testing@ashlandprep.com.

    Ashland Prep ACT and SAT testing FAQ

    • How has COVID changed college testing requirements for student-athletes?

      Due to COVID, nearly all colleges are test-optional for the class of 2022. Test-optional simply means that colleges will consider SAT and ACT scores if submitted, but no longer require them as part of the application process.

      Many colleges have extending these test optional policies to the class of 2023 and beyond. The NCAA has even nullified the SAT/ACT requirement for student-athletes. This is great news for your student, because ACT or SAT scores can only help — not hurt — your student's college prospects.

      Some collegiate athletic programs still maintain certain score requirements for student-athletes, especially if your student has grades below a college's admissions standards.

      The SAT or ACT can still help your student in the college application and recruitment process! In a year where college admissions offices are suddenly void of standardized testing information, the more favorable data you can provide athletic programs and admissions, the easier you're making their jobs. 

    • When can my student take the real SAT or ACT?

      This year through Fall and Winter 2020, many test dates were cancelled. We at Ashland Prep even heard rumors of students traveling to less restricted states like Utah and Wyoming to take the exams! Test registration, frankly, was a mess through the Fall: the ACT and the College Board both let individual testing sites cancel or host tests at their discretion, in some case on extremely short notice.

      However, with the COVID-19 vaccine slowly rolling out, we anticipate that students will begin having easier access to tests beginning in April 2021 for the ACT and May 2021 for the SAT. Furthermore, your student's school may be hosting school-specific test dates that are different from the dates below. This has been a practice happening more often during COVID.

      That said, here are the official upcoming dates for the exams:

      SAT:
      March 13, 2021
      May 8, 2021
      June 5, 2021
      August 28, 2021
      October 2, 2021
      November 6, 2021
      December 4, 2021

      ACT:
      February 6, 2021
      April 17, 2021
      June 12, 2021
      July 17, 2021

      ACT Dates TBA, but likely:
      September 2021, October 2021, December 2021

    • How long are these tests?

      Plan for 4 hours of time.

    • Will my student have to do the essays on these practice tests?

      These practice exams are multiple choice only. However, for the real ACT or SAT, we recommend your student still take the test with the essay. As long as your student can write a C-grade essay, he or she can focus more on the multiple choice components in their preparation. Colleges are mostly using the essays to look for significant discrepancies in students' grades and their standardized testing scores/writing ability.

    • What if I can't make any of the above practice test dates?

      Please reach out to testing@ashlandprep.com to request our other dates that we host for students across the U.S. We generally offer practice tests on the first two Saturdays of each month at 9 am.
