    Class of 2022: 

    For the Class of 2022 that plans to apply to CSU or UC colleges for Fall 2022 admission, these are good things to remember: 

    • Taking Math during your senior year is important for college acceptance. 
    • SAT/ACT - while some colleges are not taking these as part of the entrance requirements, it may still be a good idea to take these tests for placement in college. 
    • As always, going above and beyond in your A-G requirements will increase your chances of acceptance to CSU and UC schools. 
    • For CSU schools, the new qualifying minimum GPA is a 2.5 in A-G coursework.
