Do I Need To Take The Test?

 

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.

 

Check the college's admission page to see their policies on admissions test requirements

How Do I Send My Test Scores To Colleges?

 
Sending Scores to CSU/Cal States: 
 
The California State University (CSU) has temporarily suspended the use of ACT/SAT examinations in determining admission eligibility for all CSU campuses f​or the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 academic years. 
 
  • If you are accepted to a CSU campus ACT or SAT test scores will be used as one of the measures to place you in the proper mathematics and English courses.
