AUSTIN (KXAN) — College entrance exams and advanced placement classes are being altered due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Texas Education Agency said.

College Board and ACT are suspending SAT and ACT testing until June. Those who registered for the tests and had them canceled will receive a refund, the TEA said in a press release.

International Baccalaureate exams for May 2020 won’t be administered, but AP exams will be modified and given online.

The Texas Success Initiative Assessment can be taken online through Examity for a reduced price.

More information on the TEA’s modifications and alterations to testing can be found at its website.
