Changes to the University of California Requirements for the Class of 2021

The UCs are relaxing testing requirements and will no longer require ACT or SAT for the class of 2021 ONLY. They are also accepting pass/fail grades for the classes taken in the spring of 2020 for all students. Students may still submit test scores but are not required to and the lack of testing will not hurt their applications.

Changes to the California State University System

Changes to Test-Optional Policies

Multiple colleges that are not typically test-optional have allowed the class of 2021 to apply without SAT or ACTs. Test-optional colleges can be tracked on the FairTest website. Newly added colleges may not be included.
