California residents must (California high school graduate or a resident of California for tuition purposes) have a minimum eligibility index of 2900 using SAT scores or 694 using ACT scores. (The SAT score component for CSU is the sum of the mathematics and critical reading scores. Neither ACT nor SAT writing scores are included in the calculation of the CSU Eligibility Index.)

  • California nonresidents or nongraduates of California high schools must have a minimum eligibility index of 3502 using SAT scores or 842 using ACT scores.

  • SAT Scores: ACT Scores: [(Your GPA ) x 800] + Your SAT Total [(Your GPA ) x 200] + (10 x ACT Comp)

Basic skills assessment at the california state university and university of california
Basic Skills Assessment at the California State University and University of California

New students enrolling at the 23 campuses of the California State University (CSU) will be joining more than 390,000 students and 22,000faculty members in an academic program requiring college-level skills in reading, writing, and computation. Students need to master these basic skills not only to accomplish college-level work but also to meet society's need for a literate, educated citizenry. Because some students admitted to the California State University lack the necessary proficiency in reading, writing, or math to succeed in college, the CSU has designed tests in English and mathematics to identify those students who could benefit from additional pre-baccalaureate study in these areas.Students who cannot demonstrate the level of proficiency in English and mathematics expected by faculty of entering freshmen will be placed in special courses or programs during their first term of enrollment to increase that proficiency and mastery. This brochure provides information about the English Placement Test (EPT). Another brochure, called Focus on Mathematics, available from the CSU Chancellor's Office or online at http://www.calstate.edu/ar/fom. pdf, provides information about the math assessment test, the Entry Level Mathematics Test (ELM).

The assessments may be waived based on passage of specific criteria set by the universities. See websites for further information.
