Ø ACT/SAT Testing: All colleges/universities accept either test for admissions. Make sure to take advantage of your 4-FREE score reports. The last date accepted for most college applications is the December test date of your senior year. Plan your schedule accordingly to allow taking the test 2-3 times. Colleges will always take the best score & some even Superscore (CSU) and take the best composite math/critical reading scores from different test dates. It is highly recommended that all students include the “optional” writing section for both the ACT & SAT. Many schools, including all of the UC campuses, require the writing section as part of the application for admission.
