UC’s Announcement regarding the class of 2021 SAT and ACT Testing
The University of California announced on Tuesday, March 31 that they will take a number of steps to temporarily adjust admissions requirements, so students and families will have one less thing to worry about during this COVID-19 pandemic.
The measures include suspending the letter grade requirement for academic classes taken in winter, spring or summer terms of 2020; providing flexibility for students who need more time to meet registration, deposit and transcript deadlines; and suspending the standardized test requirement for students applying for admission as freshmen for fall 2021. According to the University of California, these changes do not lower the bar for admission, but accommodate the real barriers students have faced as tests have been cancelled and classes have moved to pass/fail grading.
