There are more than 75% of U.S. colleges don’t require SAT or ACT scores for admissions.

More than 1,775 U.S. colleges and universities — three-quarters of the four-year institutions in the United States — are either test-optional or test blind this year, according to a list published by FairTest: the National Center for Fair and Open Testing. That’s an all-time high.

More than half of colleges are pledging to continue to not require the SAT or ACT for admission for the next admissions year as well.

UC will not consider SAT or ACT test scores when making admissions decisions or awarding scholarships. If you choose to submit test scores as part of your application, they may be used as an alternative method of fulfilling minimum requirements for eligibility or for course placement after you enroll.
