Send Placement Scores

If you have not already done so, take the SAT or ACT test and have your official scores sent to The Young Americans College of the Performing Arts' Admissions Office.

ACT, SAT, or Accuplacer scores may be used to satisfy the College’s assessment requirement. Students who have not taken the ACT or SAT may contact the Admissions Office at [email protected] to inquire about taking the Accuplacer assessment test.

ACT scores can be requested through the ACT website; school code: 6944. SAT scores can be requested through the College Board website; school code: 7384.  Those who plan to enroll in the North Central partnership must also send their placement scores to North Central Michigan College (ACT school code 2037.
