Neither the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) nor the American College Test (ACT) is required for admission to the College. However, students who have taken these tests should send scores to the San Antonio College Assessment and Research Center, room 110 of the Fletcher Administration Center.

Persons 18 years of age or older who are not high school graduates are encouraged to discuss admission with one of the counselors by calling (210) 486-0333 or by visiting the Counseling Center in the Moody Learning Center on the San Antonio College campus. This office can also respond to questions regarding testing and course placement.

Persons transferring to the College from other accredited institutions should provide the Admissions and Records Office with an official transcript from all the institutions previously attended.
