PSAT for Juniors

The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) is administered to juniors, and provides information about a student’s academic potential for doing college-level work.  It is also the route of entry to the National Merit Scholarship Program, providing students the opportunity to compete with other juniors for scholarships. The PSAT is also a practice test for the SAT.

Regis High School will be administering the PSAT test on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 (periods 1-5).  This test is FREE to students. More details will come prior to testing.

Students can request a transcript by completing a “Transcript Request Form” available in the Counseling Office.   

Send your official test scores to each campus that interests you, using its ACT code or SAT code. If you did not list the ACT codes of the schools you have decided to apply to when they first took the ACT, you will need to go back and request ACT to send their scores.  This can be done online at www.actstudent.org (click on send scores).  It does require an additional fee.   

Most campuses require the testing agency report your score directly to them (Regis cannot send the scores for you)
