The SAT/ACT

In order to meet entrance requirements for the UC and CSU systems as well as most other colleges/universities students must take the SAT and/or the ACT. These tests are used by colleges and universities to determine/predict whether or not a student will be successful in college and are used to determine eligibility for entrance into each college/university. Although these tests are not the only factor in the admissions process, they are a necessary requirement for all students who apply to a four year college/university.

Paper applications and registration materials are available in the PHS Counseling Office. Students can also register on-line for the SAT @ www.collegeboard.com and for the ACT @ www.actstudent.org. Please see your PHS counselor if you have questions about the SAT/ACT.

**Students applying to a UC Campus must take either the SAT/ACT AND the SAT II (subject tests)**
**Students should check with each college/university in which they plan to apply for testing requirements**
