When students take the SAT they get to select 4 colleges to send those scores to for free. The scores will sit and wait to be processed when they formally apply. Most Colleges and Universities have application fees that can range from $20-$60. Most of them require students to send official SAT/ACT scores with their application. College Board (SAT) and ACT charge $10-$12 per college or university they want to send their scores to. Students should select their colleges/universities on their test day so that they can be sent for free. So, students really need to know which four colleges to select earlier than you may think.
