SAT/ACT Information
College Assessment is part of the College Admission Requirement for 4-year Colleges and Universities 
 
SAT Information
The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) is the standard college admissions assessment required by most colleges and universities. It consists of a two section multiple choice test in English and Math that is approximately 3-4 hours in length with a maximum score of 1600 (800 points max per section). It is highly recommended that students take at least two practice SAT tests through Khan Academy online (for free), or by purchasing an SAT Prep book (examples: College Board, Kapplan, Princeton Review, Barron's, SAT for Dummies, etc.) The average eligible SAT score for UC (and similar) schools is 1200. The CSU minimum average requirement is 1000. SAT Subject exams may be required as well, depending on the college and choice of major.
 
SAT cost = $45 *unless the student is on free/reduced lunch,*  in which case, a fee waiver can be obtained in the YVHS Counseling Office on a first come, first served basis.

The ACT is based on a scaled composite score from last years' average and ranges from 1-36. A score of 27 is the minimum score for admission to a CSU school, while the UC scores are more demanding, usually averaging over 30. Please check with your specific college admissions office for the required target score for each subject.
 
ACT cost = $42.50 ($58.50 with the writing section) *unless the student is on free/reduced lunch,* in which case, a fee waiver can be obtained in the YVHS Counseling Office on a first come, first served basis.
