SAT/ACT UC Information

On-going litigation related to the University of California’s admissions processes may affect some UC application materials. However, no matter what happens in the litigation, no applicants will be required to submit an SAT or ACT score for Fall 2021, and applications will not be viewed negatively based on the lack of a score. UC understands that there are real safety concerns about gathering to take a standardized test. The safety of applicants is more important to the University than any test score.
