Testing Requirements

While we do not use ACT and SAT scores to determine your fit for Make School, as a formality we require them to extend you a place in our class. We accept both the ACT and SAT with and without the essay and writing portion of the test.

Below is some useful information on reporting scores, upcoming test dates, and ways to go about getting a fee waiver.

Reporting Scores

If you have already taken the ACT or SAT, you can request that the testing agency forward a score report to Make School using our college code numbers.

  • ACT code: 7957
  • SAT code: 7604

Some states, schools, and districts offer free testing. Here are a couple of resources you can check to see if you live in one of those areas.

Alternatively, your high school counselor can email apply@makeschool.com from their high school email address with a copy of your official scores downloaded from the ACT or SAT counselor portals.

If you have already taken these tests, please send us all of the scores. Again, we will not be looking at these scores to determine your acceptance to the program.

Test Dates

If you have not yet taken the ACT or SAT, please sign up for an upcoming test date and indicate you would like your test score sent to Make School using our college code numbers.

We recommend you sign up for the next available testing date. It takes a few weeks for scores to be released to colleges, so the earlier you take the test, the better. Please be mindful of registration deadlines since you will incur a fee if you register for these tests late. Also, test centers can fill up, so the earlier you sign, the more likely you will be to get the test center of your choice.

Fee Waivers

The ACT and SAT offer their own fees waivers for students who qualify for free or reduced lunch or make under a certain amount of annual income. Please visit the sites below to see if you are eligible and how to sign up.

Some states, schools, and districts offer free testing. Here are a couple of resources you can check to see if you live in one of those areas.

If you do not qualify for a fee waiver and cost is a barrier to taking the ACT or SAT, please email admissions@makeschool.com .
