3) Don’t forget to send your SAT/ACT scores to colleges.
Please check with each of your schools, and send scores accordingly.  

  • SAT to UCs:  Sending a score report to one UC will allow all UCs to access that SAT score report.
  • SAT to CSUs:  Sending a score report to the option "3594 - CSU Mentor - Long Beach" will allow all CSU campuses access to that SAT score report.  Note that "CSU Mentor - Long Beach" is where the CSU's Office of the Chancellor is located and should not be confused with the CSU campus at Long Beach.
  • ACT to UCs:  Sending a score report to one UC will allow access for all UCs to that score report.
  • ACT to CSUs:  If you have listed one CSU campus as an ACT score report recipient, you can use the ACT Scores Manager within your CSU Mentor account to release your score to additional campuses.  Before you can use the ACT Scores Manager, you must first have arranged for your ACT scores to be sent to one CSU campus.
