Almost all four-year colleges and
universities require incoming fresh
men to take a College Entrance
Examination; either the SAT or
ACT. These tests are an indication
of your preparation in English and
Mathematics. You receive a verbal .
and math score. The two scores .
added together give you your SAT
score. An additional part of the
SAT tests your knowledge of
Standard Written English. The Test
of Standard Written English is
very important to some institutions.
The U of O and SOSC require a
minimum score of 30 on the SAT
TSWE or 15 on the Enhanced
ACT English subtest. The SAT is
given during the months of Novem
ber, December, January, March,
May and June. The closest test site
is Bend. The ACT is given during
the months of October, December,
February, April and June. Students
should see their counselor for the
exact test date and application.

the fee is S35.
Community colleges have an
open door policy and do not have a
subject or GPA requirement. How
ever, they do have an admission
testing policy. Community colleges
administer their own admission
tests. It is similar to the SAT in that
it measures verbal and math skills
and is used for placement purposes.
Community colleges must be con
tacted individuality for their admis
sion testing procedures.

grams The young man or woman who

intelligence, competitive and can
conform to a rigid daily schedule
and strict discipline might consider
admittance to a service academy.

begun your application to a service
academy in the spring of your jun
ior year. If you did not however,
you must see your counselor before
the end of September. There are
physical, medical and aptitude tests
to be taken, in addition to the SAT.

is by appointment only. It costs
nothing to attend and you are paid
while in the academy. Each cadet

vice academy, you might consider
the Reserve Officer Training Corps

yearly get the majority of their col
lege education paid for through
ROTC scholarships. A student who
who receives a four-year ROTC
scholarship gets full tuition and
fees and $100 a month stipend.
While in college, students generally
major in the field of their choice.
Three days a week will be spent in
military science classes. At the end
of four years, they receive a degree
as well as a commission as an
officer in the branch of service they
selected. During the summer while
enrolled in college the student

itary base. The Army, Navy and
Airforce have ROTC programs.
