Questions regarding Testing

Test-Required: As a part of the evaluation process the exam is a requirement.

Test-Optional: Colleges allow applicants to decide whether to submit SAT or ACT® scores as part of their application. It doesn’t mean that schools aren’t interested in seeing all applicants’ performance and potential—but if a student doesn’t submit their scores, it won’t be considered in the application review

Test-Blind: Colleges will not consider the SAT or ACT® as a part of their admission evaluation process.

HOW TO SEND MY TEST SCORES TO COLLEGES

Sending Scores to CSU/Cal States: If you are applying to a CSU school and you send an official test score to any one school, your scores will automatically be sent to all CSU schools to which you submit an application. You do not need to send a copy of your scores to every CSU school.
 
Sending Scores to UCs: If you are applying to a UC school and you send an official test score to any one school, your scores will automatically be sent to all UC schools to which you submit an application. You do not need to send a copy of your scores to every UC school.
 
Sending Scores to Private Colleges: Send the score directly to each college. 
 
Students are given four free SAT score reports each time they take the test IF they request that their scores be sent within nine days of taking the SAT. Additional reports can be requested for an additional fee. 
 
Students are given four free ACT score reports each time they take the test IF they request that their scores be sent within four days of taking the ACT. Additional reports can be requested for an additional fee.
 
Students are not required to send AP scores when they apply to college. Instead, when students take their AP exams in May of their senior year, they will write on their AP answer sheet which ONE college the student has decided to attend.
