Assessment Scores Removed from Transcripts

Per SB20-175, (https://leg.colorado.gov/bills/sb20-175) no student assessment scores can be posted on high school students’ transcripts, even if requested by students. Every student is allocated four free score “sends” from the College Board (SAT) and ACT. However, students are required to identify the institutions they want scores sent to within 9 days of testing (SAT), or at the time of registration (ACT). Students qualifying for fee waivers (typically students who also qualify for free or reduced lunch) can request unlimited score “sends” at any time. Contact your student’s school if you have questions.
