Test Requirements

CSU: SAT & ACT test scores will not be used for determining who gets admitted into the CSU for the Fall 2021, Winter/Spring/Fall 2022, and Winter/Spring 2023 admission cycles. If you are accepted to a CSU campus, ACT or SAT test scores will be used as one of the measures to place you in the proper Mathematics and English courses.

UC: 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.


Please consult the Course Catalog, your counselor, and the Liberty Ranch High School UC/CSU “A-G” approved course list for specific classes that meet these requirements.  The website to look up our UC/CSU “A-G” approved courses is:
