Be sure to check the individual colleges’ website for specific test requirements.
The SAT Reasoning Test measures what students have learned in school and how they apply that knowledge. The SAT is offered seven times a year. The SAT assesses critical thinking and problem solving skills in three areas: critical reading, mathematics, and writing. The College Board will no longer be providing SAT Subject Tests or SAT with Essay. Please visit www.collegeboard.org for more information.
ACT (WITH OR WITHOUT WRITING) TEST
The ACT® test assesses high school students' general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work. The multiple-choice tests cover four skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science. The Writing Test, which is optional, measures skill in planning and writing a short essay.
*The writing test is not required for the California State University System but is required for the University of California. For more information regarding the ACT test and college requirements, please visit the ACT and the specific college website.
