    **When registering for the ACT or SAT remember to use the school code - 281-030 - so the school will have your score to record on your transcript for scholarships and some colleges.

    **If you register with the NCAA (ACT code 9999) or the NAIA (ACT code 9876), you must request a transcript be sent from the guidance office but they will only accept your ACT score directly from ACT, I cannot submit that score for you. You must record their code number as one of your college choices when registering for the test.
