Test Preparation for High School Graduates and Graduate School Entrance Exams


Test Preparation at the University of Utah is now enrolling students into ACT and GRE courses for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters. The cost of these courses is covered through COVID course financial assistance for qualifying students.

Who Qualifies for these Programs?

Students applying for the ACT course do not need to indicate economic hardship in order to qualify for financial assistance. However, those applying for the GRE courses must attest that they are un- or under-employed. This could include a loss of employment, reduction of work hours, or inability to fully pay for a GRE prep couse.


ACT Test Preparation

Our University of Utah Instructors will conduct 10 hours-worth of live online instruction time, covering all subjects of the ACT exam. Students enrolled in any of the following ACT courses will gain full access to an online ACT Magoosh license. Magoosh provides an incredible resource rich with over 90 hours of video instruction and multiple practice test options to be completed from the comfort of your own home. Furthermore, students will develop key test taking strategies that will help them perform well on the ACT examination.
