SAT not ACT for 2016

The Michigan Department of Education announced the SAT will be the state-required free college entrance exam starting in spring of 2016. Since 2007, the ACT was the state's free test. Current students preparing to take the ACT this spring will do so as planned, but changes go into effect starting next year. The College Board, which administers the SAT, won its competitive bid which will be a cost-savings to taxpayers in the long run. To learn more, click here. The Library offers free ACT or SAT test preparation from the LearningExpress Library on our databases page with a Canton library card.
