TEST UPDATES for SENIORS - CLASS OF 2021
UCs and CSUs have made the SAT/ACT TEST OPTIONAL/BLIND!!! Many private colleges have as well.
***Please make sure you double check ALL the colleges you wish to apply to, especially out-of-state and private colleges.
What does this mean?
The SAT/ACT is NOT REQUIRED for the Class of 2021 for UCs and for CSUs.
If you have taken the SAT/ACT and submit your scores, it will ONLY be used for class placement purposes.
Students who submit test scores will NOT have priority over students who do not submit test scores at a UC/CSU.
This is also true for merit-based scholarships at UCs/CSUs.
UCs/CSUs want students to focus on themselves, their families, and their mental health during this pandemic.
Please note, subject tests are NOT needed nor recommended for the Class of 2021 (These were previously recommended for Science/Engineering majors)
