College Admission Tests
The Oregon University System requires students to complete either the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT). College advisors strongly recommend high school students in their sophomore and junior year take the PSAT test in preparation for the SAT. All sophomores will be offered the PSAT at no cost. There will be a cost for juniors who take the PSAT. The SAT and ACT are administered nationally. Please see their respective websites for information related to exam dates and registration. Students should consult with their counselor to determine the requirements of their chosen institution.
4 years of language arts
3 years of mathematics (Algebra 1 and higher)
3 years of social studies
3 years of science
2 years of the same world language
Students should have A PASSING GRADE OF C OR BETTER IN ALL CORE CLASSES. Each OUS campus reviews applicants individually and the receipt of a grade below a C- may not automatically prevent a student from being admitted. For more detailed information about college admissions, students and parents should seek advice from their high school counselor and the admission advisor at the college/university of interest.
