    College Entrance Exams (SAT & ACT) Updates:
     
    University of California
     
    For Current Seniors:  UC has suspended the SAT and ACT testing requirement for students applying for the fall 2021 due to test cancellations triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic.  HOWEVER, students applying for fall 2021 are not precluded from taking standardized tests (SAT or ACT) and sending scores if they are able. Doing so can support their statewide UC eligibility, application for certain scholarships, and help them fulfill some University graduation requirements. Campuses will adjust their internal processes accordingly to ensure that no student is harmed in admissions selection should they not submit a test score. 
     
    For all students:
    University of California has suspend SAT and ACT testing requirements through 2024 and will eliminate them for California students by 2025. 

    Standardized test results will be optional on applications for the next two years and then eliminated for California students in Years 3 and 4. By fall 2025, the UC system is aiming to have its own assessment. If none is developed by then, the university will drop the SAT and ACT tests entirely for California students and evaluate them using high school grades and a dozen other factors in its comprehensive review system.

     

    California State University 
     
    For Current Seniors:  The California State University has temporarily suspended the SAT or ACT test requirements only for students applying for admission in fall 2021 as freshman. This means that SAT and ACT scores will not be used for determining who gets admitted into the CSU.​  ​If you have already taken and submitted your ACT or SAT sc​ores, CSU campuses will not use them in the admission evaluation process to determine who gets admitted.  If you are accepted to a CSU campus, the scores will be used as one of the measures to place you in the proper mathematics and English courses.
     
    For all students:  The temporary suspension of submitting ACT and SAT test scores is not a permanent policy shift. It is a temporary accommodation for fall 2021 applicants, driven by the current circumstances created by COVID-19. However, if the COVID-19 pandemic lasts longer than expected and high schools and/or t​esting continue to be impacted, the CSU will again review its admission criteria.
