Testing Information

Test scores for Fall 2021 and Fall 2022 admission decisions will NOT be considered. The following information will apply to subsequent years.


Cal Poly only uses ACT or SAT 1 scores in our selection process. You can take either test as many times before November 30 as you’d like. We will apply the best score for each area of the individual test on your application. You may send December scores, but we can't guarantee that they will be used in the selection process. Cal Poly will use self-reported scores during selection.

You can have your scores sent directly to us from the testing agency.
