Normally, eStudies is open to students who score above certain levels on their ACT or SAT. Because many TIP students were unable to take the ACT or SAT this spring, we are waiving the test score requirement only for the July 23–September 11 eStudies term. All TIP students in grades 7–10 are eligible to apply for this term of eStudies. This includes students who have not yet taken the ACT/SAT and students whose ACT/SAT scores fall below the qualification levels we typically use.
