Statewide path

UC is committed to ensuring enrollment opportunities for all qualified California high school graduates.

 UC will not consider SAT or ACT test scores as factors in fall 2022 admissions decisions. In light of this change, we’ve revised the index we use to determine eligibility for the statewide guarantee, effective fall 2022. The Statewide Index will continue to identify California-resident students in the top 9 percent of California high school graduates and offer these students a guaranteed space at a UC campus, if space is available.

For more information on calculating the Statewide Index as well as FAQs, please visit our UC admission website on the Statewide Guarantee.
