I'm still young (I'm turning 19 this month) but I've been out of high school for over a year, and I am hoping to try and go to college. I'd like to jump during the second semester this year rather than have to wait an entire year.
I just don't know how to go about doing that. Every resource I've looked at doesn't seem to apply to me. They're either for young people who are transitioning straight from high school to college, or for adult students who have been out of school for several years. Now I see why the number of students who return after taking a year off between high school and college is so low. It's so difficult!
I'd also like to re-take the SAT as well. I had a 1320 when I took it almost two years ago, but I don't remember the codes to be able to get in and send that score to colleges now, and I'd like to try and raise that score too. But even that's difficult since I'm not in high school.

Trystan, please contact the admissions office of the college(s) you are interested in attending and ask about their enrollment policies. Some colleges have open or rolling enrollments. You can contact the College Board about retrieving your old SAT scores and for information on preparing for and re-taking the exam.
