    ACT: www.actstudent.org/start
    SAT: www.sat.collegeboard.org

    You have the option to send up to four score reports at no additional charge. More score reports can be added for an additional fee. Scores sent after the testing date will be charged separate fees. Universities use your best scores in admissions decisions, so we recommend sending all scores to selected schools at the time of test registration. To save money and maximize your four free score reports, you can:

    • Send SAT scores to one CSU and they will be available to all CSU schools

    • Send SAT scores to one UC and they will be available to all UC schools

    • Use the code 9999 to send SAT scores to the NCAA (for athletic eligibility)
