Changes to Standardized Test Reporting
HF Seniors and Parents,
With the variety of policies regarding testing requirements and submission, the HF College Counseling Office will no longer send test scores on behalf of our students. You should work with your college counselor in determining what, if any, scores to send to each institution. Seniors and their parents and/or guardians are advised to pay close attention to each college’s specific requirement regarding test scores, as well as application deadlines, to ensure their applications and test scores are correctly and timely submitted.
Many colleges allow students to self-report scores and many colleges require students to have their scores sent directly from the testing agencies. Nearly half of all four-year colleges are Test Optional in the admission process. Many more institutions super-score test scores in a variety of ways. Students are the owners of their test scores, and HF wants to assure that we are not sending scores which students do not want sent.
Please note that it can take a few weeks for a college to receive scores from the testing agencies. Be sure to plan accordingly. Here are links for sending your scores directly to the colleges via the testing agencies:
Any test scores added in Naviance Student are not reported to colleges; these scores are used to inform the conversation between the student and their college counselor.
For the Class of 2020, we will send scores by request for those applying Early admission only if you complete the Standardized Test Scores Request form. This form can be obtained from College Counseling.
