Amarillo College serves as a Testing Center for the SAT. The SAT program has two components: SAT Reasoning and SAT Subject Test. Both measure skills important for academic success, and are often used to grant admission, credit, and/or placement in college. The SAT Reasoning Assessment measures Verbal, Mathematic, and Writing Skills, and is often used as a criterion for admission to colleges and universities. SAT Subject tests measure specific skills in different subject areas.

Although the SAT is not required for the admission to Amarillo College, academic credit may be awarded based upon scores achieved. The policies and scores required to earn credit by examination for the SAT assessment are described below:
