Preparing for College

Can Transfer Applicant Take the SAT Again?

Question: My son is transferring from a community college to a four-year college. He has been at the CC for one year and has taken the SAT once in high school. Can he take it again?


Yes, your son can take the SAT again. Note, however, that he may not need to. Some colleges that require the SAT (or ACT) for freshmen will waive it for transfer applicants. But, if your son wants to take the test again to aim for a higher score, that's fine.

Good luck with the transfer process.
