SAT & ACT Information

CSUs and UCs are no longer using the SAT or ACT for admissions purposes. Students who do take a test can choose to submit it for placement purposes only.

The UC system requires the SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT exam with writing. SAT Subject Tests are not required, but they are recommended for certain campuses and majors (click here for more information).

Check the websites of out-of-state and independent colleges/universities for their exam requirements.

Sign up early as test centers quickly fill up.  Be sure to keep your user name/password information in a safe place. DO NOT sign up with multiple user names, or you will have to call to correct your account information.

Some students may be eligible for fee waivers; see Mrs. Joseph in the Career Center for more information.
