<span style="background-color: transparent;">Collegeboard.org is a great resource for this! I poured through the pages of universities all over the U.S. when I was a senior in high school. Collegeboard was my go-to site! They put all of the information in one place and it is very easy to use. They even have various filters you can apply to see only colleges that have programs you are interested. To determine academic rigor, look at the admissions requirements, G.P.A. of past admitted applicants, SAT/ACT scores, class rank etc. This will give you an idea of what scores and grades you need to be accepted. However, don't be discouraged your application will be reviewed based on the full picture! College-board will help you get an idea of what is most important to the specific school you are applying to.</span>



This professional recommends the following next steps:

Terrence,


That depends on the college/university that you decide to apply to, some require SAT scores, others are okay with an ACT score. You just have to check and see! CollegeBoard.org and Petersons.com can be helpful sites letting you know typical scores and tests that are accepted in applications.

Yes, this is possible. However, it is largely dependent upon the school you are applying to as to whether you submit an ACT or SAT. Check out their application website for more information.

This is truly dependent on the university you apply to. You're in a good position having one good score, regardless. The university will post on the application website the requirements for that application.
