Testing Deadlines

Freshman Examination Requirement

Required Examination: You are expected to complete these exams as early as possible, but no later than December of your senior year.

Either the ACT plus Writing Test OR SAT Reasoning Test

University of California campuses share scores. If you have your official test results sent to one UC campus, it will be available to sister campuses where you’ve applied as well.

Optional Examinations:
The SAT Subject Tests are not required.  However, you are welcome to submit scores if you would like to:

  • Use Subject Tests to satisfy “a-g” subject requirements.
  • Show your mastery of a particular subject or set of subjects.
