Score Reporting

SAT Score Reporting

At the time of SAT test registration, you can select 4 free score reports to send to colleges; alternatively, you can request scores to be sent later, at the time of application, for a per-college fee. 

 

College Board offers Score Choice, an SAT score reporting feature that allows students to choose which scores from a specific test date to send to colleges. Score Choice is optional, and if students choose not to use it, all scores will be sent automatically.  Click on the link above for descriptions, a tutorial and answers to frequently asked questions about score choice.  Be aware that some colleges require students to report scores from all test sittings. Check with the admissions department for each college to which you are applying to find out the specific requirements for reporting your SAT scores.

 

If you use a fee waiver to register for the SAT, this entitles you to 4 additional free score reports for colleges, at the time of registration. Please note this is 4 total score reports, not 4 per test registration. Also, the SAT registration fee waiver entitles you to 4 college application fee waivers.

 

ACT Score Reporting

When you register for the ACT, you can choose up to four colleges to which ACT will send your scores as part of the basic fee for your test option. If you take the test more than once, you choose which test date results the colleges will receive.  ACT sends scores only for the test date you select.

 

If you use a fee waiver to register for the ACT, this entitles you to 4 additional free score reports for colleges, at the time of registration (if you provide valid codes when you register).

 

 

If, on your SAT/ACT registration, you list colleges where you want your scores sent, the UCs and CSUs will keep the scores for 2 years.

Money Saving Tips

UC campuses

In step 8 of the UC application, authorize the release of your application information with all UC campuses (it's the first release on the third screen of step 8, after the affidavits). If you do so, then the official test scores sent to any one UC campus will be shared with the UC Office of the President and accessible to all of the UC campuses system-wide.

 

CSU campuses

 

SAT: If you list a CSU campus as an SAT score report recipient, your scores will automatically be sent to all campuses to which you submit an application. You may also use the CSU systemwide institution code (3594) to ensure that all campuses to which you submit an application receive your scores.

 

ACT: If you list a CSU campus as an ACT score report recipient, your scores will automatically be sent to all campuses to which you submit an application.
