I'd like to go to a university in canada but currently live in NJ. Do Canadian universities need the SATs? If not, then is there some other type of test I have to take?

The first thing you need to know is that Candian universities are controlled and funded by the province in which they are located. Each province may have a different method of handling international students.

In Ontario, each of the 18 pubicly-funded universities is free to set its own admission requirements. Therefore, the best course of action is to determine which university(s) you're interested in, and then search their web site(s) for the particular standard.

As an example, Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario requires US students to have minimum grades of B- in a core group of grade 12 subjects to be considered for admission. Queen's also requires US students to submit SAT I scores.

More information specific to Queen's can be found at: Queen's University - Admission Services - American School Requirements (http://www.queensu.ca/admission/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=347&Item id=507 - broken link)

Fiske's Guide has specific information about Canadian colleges, among others. Although the American colleges are organized alphabetically, Canadian and British ones are clumped together under "I" for international.

Are you Canadian?
Am I a Canadian citizen? (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/citizenship/questions-citizenship.asp - broken link)

If you are it seems you'd apply for Citizenship and for University. If not, then you have to apply as an International student and the Canadian University can assist you with the paperwork required.
