SAT & ACT INFORMATION
California State University: In March 2022, the CSU Board of Trustees approved the removal of the SAT & ACT standardized tests from undergraduate admissions processes. This means that SAT and ACT scores will not be used for determining who gets admitted into the CSU. The eligibility index will uses an applicants’ high school GPA as the primary factor in the formula, but will incorporate secondary factors to replace the test scores. Applicants have the option to submit ACT & SAT Scores.
The University of California will not consider SAT or ACT test scores when making admissions decisions or awarding scholarships. If you choose to submit test scores as part of your application, they may be used as an alternative method of fulfilling minimum requirements for eligibility or for course placement after you enroll.
If you currently qualify for free or reduced lunch, you are eligible for a limited number of SAT/ACT fee waivers during your junior and senior years. (Fee waiver not valid for late registration.) If you are eligible, please email Mrs. De Robles at [email protected] for an electronic fee waiver.
The school is issued only a limited number of fee waivers from both ACT and College Board. To send scores to multiple CSU campuses, use the CSU Mentor code: 3594.
