Do I have to take the ACT to get into college?

Call it one of the many ways the world pivoted due to the pandemic. Standardized test scores from the SAT or ACT were once a requirement for admission to nearly all colleges and universities. However, many schools adopted test-optional policies in 2020. So depending on where you are applying, you may not HAVE to take the ACT to get into college. But you may want to anyways.
