College Information

College Testing Schedule

Most 2- and 4-year colleges and some scholarship programs (ROTC Scholarships for example), require the results of a College Entrance Examination be sent to them. Admissions officers and scholarship program officials use the test scores, together with your high school record and other criteria, to assess your ability to do the work required in a post-high school training program.

The most popular college entrance tests are: 

  1. The College Boards Scholastic Test (SAT)
  2. The American College Test (ACT)
  3. In addition, some colleges (the more selective ones) require the applicants to take the College Boards Achievement Tests (SAT II).

To decide if you should take a test, and which one and when, you must know the test requirements of post-high schools and the scholarship programs in which you are interested.

Students at KCS who are planning to continue their education after graduation will have the opportunity to take college entrance exams during the school year. Students are encouraged to register online at www.collegeboard.com and or www.ACTSTUDENT.org. If you need any further assistance please contact the Counseling Office.

  • Wednesday, Sept. 26 at Marketplace Mall from 6:30-8 p.m.
  • Thursday, Sept. 27 at Greece Ridge Mall from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Genesee Promise Plus Program Offers Free College Courses This Summer to Seniors

Genesee Promise Plus is a special program designed specifically for high school students who are graduating in June 2018 from a high school located in Genesee, Livingston, Orleans and Wyoming (GLOW) counties in New York State. Under Genesee Promise Plus, every GLOW area June 2018 high school graduate will receive a scholarship covering the cost of tuition and fees for one or two summer 2018 courses offered by Genesee Community College at any of its seven campus locations in Albion, Arcade, Batavia, Dansville, Lima, Medina and Warsaw. Online classes are also available for students without access to transportation. Students are responsible for purchasing required textbooks; the scholarship doesn't cover these costs.
