The California State University (CSU)

Testing Announcements & Updates

General Tips
  • Keep checking your colleges' websites to see what they are advising for virtual tours and events (e.g. Virtual open house, live chats, webinars, online presentations, social media events, etc)
  • Although the University of California (UC) and California State Universities (CSU) have announced they will not require the SAT/ACT for the Class of 2021 as an admission's requirement, it is highly recommended you still take the SAT and/or ACT (if offered) for other college admissions, scholarship opportunities, and for any other organizations that may require a testing score. Some colleges/universities have not announced their policy on the SAT/ACT as an admission's requirement. It would be best to be prepared, and not limit yourself to any opportunities.
