In March 2016, the College Board rolled out the new SAT exam. The University of California faculty have decided to accept both the old and new SAT exam scores from students graduating high school before
2020. Here is some important information for you and your students:
- All students currently in 10th through 12th grades (prospective applicants to UC through fall 2019) have the option to submit scores from both the old or new SAT exam.
- For students currently in 9th grade and below (students graduating 2020 and later), UC will only accept the new SAT exam.
- The new SAT examination has an optional essay portion. UC requires all applicants to complete the essay portion of the new SAT.
