*The SAT Subject Tests (Subject Tests, also known as SAT II’s, are only 
offered by the College Board.)*

The UC system no longer requires that students take SAT Subject 
Tests. However, some competitive UC programs, for example, Engineering, 
are likely to recommend that applicants take SAT Subject Tests. Make 
sure to check each individual campus website.

Some private colleges require that students take two (in some cases 
three) Subject tests, which are designed to measure a student’s 
achievement in a specific subject. The tests should be chosen from 
different subject areas. Some private colleges will not require the 
subject tests if a student has taken the ACT instead of SAT Reasoning 
test. Check each individual college website.

*Test-Free Colleges*

Colleges recognize that standardized test results are not always a very 
good indicator of a student’s success in college and later life. There 
are colleges and universities nationwide that have made standardized 
tests optional.  A list of these colleges can be found at:
