National Entrance Tests

Due to COVID-19, all ACT and SAT test dates for the 2020-2021 school year have been cancelled. We will resume testing when it is deemed appropriate. We apologize for the inconvenience this might cause.

ACT / SAT Test

The ACT or SAT Test is required for freshman admissions to many four-year colleges and universities. Test scores may also be used for exemption and placement purposes at two-year/community colleges. Blinn does not require the ACT or SAT Test as a requirement for admission.

ACT is offered at the Brenham Campus only.

SAT is offered at the Brenham and Bryan campuses.
