Exam requirements for freshman admission
The University of California Board of Regents unanimously approved suspension of the standardized test requirement (ACT/SAT) for all California freshman applicants until fall 2024.
For fall 2021 applicants, UC Davis will be test-optional
ACT and SAT tests will be optional. Test scores submitted by applicants will not be used in the comprehensive application review process. Applicants who do not submit ACT or SAT test scores will receive full consideration as applicants who choose to submit test scores.
UC Davis continues to assess campus policy for students applying for 2022 admission and beyond, and will update this page by September 2021.
