Practice for College Entrance Testing

Test Score Opt Out Forms

The Virginia Department of Education “Regulations Governing Secondary School Transcripts” mandates that local divisions include a student’s test record, to include at least the highest score earned, on college performance-related standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT on the student’s secondary school transcript. Parents, guardians, or others having legal control or charge of a child may elect in writing to have their child’s test record excluded from the student transcript (opt out). 

It is important for parents to understand that it is the expectation of four-year colleges, which require an SAT or ACT score for admission, that the test score is sent to the college directly from the testing agency (College Board or ACT). The score which appears on the transcript is for informational purposes only and does not serve as the “official” score for college admissions purposes.

If you do not want your child’s college performance-related standardized test scores such as the SAT and ACT to be included on his/her official secondary school transcript, please submit the opt out form (PDF) to your child’s school counseling department.

You do not need to submit an opt out form if you wish to include your child’s college admission test record on his/her secondary school transcript. You may contact your child’s school counselor for more information regarding this option.

Parents may download this form and submit it to the school counseling office if they wish for college entrance testing scores to NOT appear on the student transcript.
