How SAT scores directly impact college tuition costs

Back to Basics DelawareWhen asked why SAT scores matter, most students would answer with a reference to increased school options or a greater likelihood of acceptance to a top-tier university. But, did you know that SAT scores can also directly impact college tuition?

A case in point is the DIAMOND STATE SCHOLARSHIP. This scholarship is available to high school students who are legal residents of Delaware and rank in upper quarter of their class. But, a key eligibility requirement is a combined SAT score of at least 1290.

The value of this scholarship is $1,250/year and is renewable for up to three additional years with a cumulative GPA of 3.0. That’s a total of $5,000 directly deducted from college expenses!

And, the Diamond State Scholarship is not singular in its reliance on the SAT as a predictor of future college success. Students can receive anything from a small scholarship to a full ride, depending on the university. Some colleges even provide automatic scholarships, based on submitted SAT scores! A few include state universities such as the University of Arizona, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, Oregon, Tennessee, and Texas, as well as large, popular universities such as Baylor and Clemson.

But, your student’s SAT scores won’t rise without help.

  •  16-hour SAT Package: Students who have previously taken an SAT or ACT exam are eligible for this package, which is streamlined to focus on a particular section of the exam, for example, Math/Science, Reading/Writing, etc., versus all sections.  Tutors will utilize students’ previous test results toward improving subject test results.

SAT Practice Exams in Delaware

In addition, Back to Basics Learning Dynamics offers SAT Practice Exams. Why take a mock test?

A practice test services two purposes. First, it provides a baseline score so that students understand their natural strengths and non-strengths. Second, these tests provide practice with content, pacing, and stamina in a simulated testing environment. To get the most accurate results possible, we use only official full-length tests provided by the College Board and recreate the atmosphere of a real SAT test as closely as possible.
