If you don't meet UC's minimum requirements, you may be considered for admission to UC if you earn high scores on the ACT with Writing or SAT and two SAT Subject Tests.
In general, this method of consideration is designed for students who have been unable to meet the regular subject requirements and/or earn a high school diploma because of unique circumstances, such as non-traditional education or long-term illness.
To be considered, you must take either the ACT with Writing or the SAT, as well as two SAT Subject Tests.
You must earn a minimum UC Score total — calculated according to the instructions below — of 410 (425 for nonresidents). In addition, you must achieve a minimum UC score of 63 on each component of the exams.
You may not use a SAT Subject Test to meet these requirements if they have completed a transferable college course with a grade of C or better in that subject.
