 For University of California:  SAT I & SAT II or ACT & SAT II

The lower the GPA, the higher the score required for admission.

The University of California and California State University have aligned their respective admission requirements. Part of this alignment has taken place in the area of electives, specifically a Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) requirement. Because of this new format the University system has adopted a phase-in approach to allow high schools time to develop courses to meet the requirement. 

 

  • Applicants will be required to present a full-year course in visual or performing arts.
