April 29: Spring SAT prep
April 20, 2017
SAT prep offered on UD's Newark campus this spring
The University of Delaware's Division of Professional and Continuing Studies is again offering intensive test prep courses this spring and summer for high school students preparing to take the SAT. Enrollment discounts are available for Delaware residents and children of UD employees.
The next SAT Prep course is offered on Saturdays, April 29-May 20, 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on UD’s Newark campus, set to coincide with spring SAT testing dates.
The four-day course consists of 16 hours of classroom activities led by an experienced test preparation instructor and includes a copy of the official SAT textbook, as well as a customized workbook. Students receive an in-depth review of the exam, including real test questions, insight into strategies for succeeding on standardized tests and a comprehensive study plan.
Classroom instruction is supplemented by student access to live online review sessions and online office hours in the weeks leading up to the SAT exam dates.
Students generally take the SAT and/or the ACT during their junior year of high school. This prep course is ideal for sophomores or juniors who may be taking the test for the first time, or for those who have already taken the exam but wish to improve their score.
For students deciding which standardized entrance exam to take, visit UD’s test prep website for an informational summary about deciding between the SAT and ACT.
Additional SAT Prep offerings, as well as ACT Prep, are scheduled for this summer.
A limited number of need-based scholarships are available to first-generation college students wishing to enroll in one of these programs. Visit the website for more details and the application. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, with preference given to submissions received at least three weeks prior to the course start date.
The test prep courses are offered in partnership with Educational Testing Consultants (ETC). A leader in higher education test preparation, ETC currently provides test preparation classes at over 30 colleges, universities and schools across the country.
The University of Delaware recently adopted a test-optional admissions policy beginning with those applying to enter UD in fall 2017. The new pilot program gives Delaware residents the ability to choose if they want to submit their SAT/ACT scores as a part of their admission application.
