Seniors should work with their parents to sign up for the tests and review payment costs. If a student is eligible for free & reduced lunch at school, two fee waivers for each test are available. Please see your counselor to see if you may qualify for a fee waivers. Seniors are strongly encouraged to visit the following websites for registration information and deadlines.
