Seniors - Apply for College and Register for Tests
It takes a long time to complete a college application. Start now, and send it in as soon as they start accepting applications. Financial decisions may be made "first come first served" and applying early may help you get the best financial aid package. Register for ACT test by August 10th if you want to take the test on September 15th. Register for the SAT online before September 10th if you want your student to take the SAT or SAT II subject tests on October 6. This time of year, it's usually the seniors who take the SAT, while younger students concentrate on the PSAT instead. \u003c/span\>This time of year, it's\nusually the seniors who take the SAT, while younger students concentrate on the\nPSAT instead.\u003c/p\>\n\n\n\n\u003cp style\u003d\"text-align:justify\"\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-weight:bold\"\>Juniors - Register now for the PSAT exam\u003c/span\>\u003cbr\>\u003ca href\u003d\"http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?t\u003dno8svccab.0.l6jh4ccab.t665w6bab.1&ts\u003dS0267&p\u003dhttp%3A%2F%2Fcollegeboard.com%2Fstudent%2Ftesting%2Fpsat%2Freg%2Fhomeschool.html\" target\u003d\"_blank\" onclick\u003d\"return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)\"\>The PSAT\u003c/a\> will be given on\nWednesday October 17 or Saturday October 20th this year.\u003cspan\> \u003c/span\>You have to register at a local high school,\npublic or private.\u003cspan\> \u003c/span\>Contact them as soon\nas possible to register - at least by the first week of school. \u003cspan style\u003d\"font-weight:bold\"\>Warning: \u003c/span\>Students must take the PSAT/NMSQT in\neleventh grade to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship!\u003cspan\> \u003c/span\>There is only one opportunity to take this test\neach year, so register now for the October test!\u003c/p\>\n\n\n\n\u003cp style\u003d\"text-align:justify\"\>\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-weight:bold\"\>Sophomores - Consider taking the PSAT\u003c/span\>\u003cbr\>You may want to take \u003ca href\u003d\"http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?t\u003dno8svccab.0.p6jh4ccab.t665w6bab.1&ts\u003dS0267&p\u003dhttp%3A%2F%2Fwww.collegeboard.com%2Fparents%2Ftests%2Fmeet-tests%2F21303.html\" target\u003d\"_blank\" onclick\u003d\"return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)\"\>the PSAT\u003c/a\> for\npractice, along with high school juniors.\u003cspan\> \n\u003c/span\>It won't count for the National Merit Scholarship Competition yet, but it is good\npractice for next year, and at $13, it's a cheap way to get a standardized test\nif required by your state.

Juniors - Register now for the PSAT exam
The PSAT will be given on Wednesday October 17 or Saturday October 20th this year. You have to register at a local high school, public or private. Contact them as soon as possible to register - at least by the first week of school. Warning: Students must take the PSAT/NMSQT in eleventh grade to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship! There is only one opportunity to take this test each year, so register now for the October test!

Sophomores - Consider taking the PSAT
You may want to take the PSAT for practice, along with high school juniors. It won't count for the National Merit Scholarship Competition yet, but it is good practice for next year, and at $13, it's a cheap way to get a standardized test if required by your state. About half of the students who take the PSAT are actually sophomores.
