The University of California (UC) system of schools will not consider SAT or ACT test scores when making admissions decisions or awarding scholarships.
Effective March 2022, the California State University (CSU) system will not use ACT or SAT examinations in determining admission eligibility for all CSU campuses. If accepted to a CSU campus, ACT or SAT test scores can only be used as one of the measures to place students in the proper mathematics and English courses.CSU Exam Information
For private colleges/universities and out-of-state public schools, please check the individual school’s website to verify, as many schools have moved to a testing optional policy.
