Fall 2022 Admissions Update from UC

All nine undergraduate campuses will not consider SAT or ACT test scores when making admissions decisions or awarding Regents and Chancellor's scholarships for fall 2022 admissions, maintaining the policy in place for fall 2021. Applicants will still be able to report SAT/ACT scores on the UC application, but those scores will only be used for the limited purposes of fulfilling the “B” (English) subject area of the A-G requirement, or for course placement or advising after students are admitted.

SCOIR: Our new college & career platform

SCOIR is the new one-stop online system that provides students with college and career planning tools to use during their time at Westview. Please note that SCOIR is replacing our previous system, Naviance.

Visit UC campuses virtually

Campuses offer a range of virtual tours for students and families to explore. Options may include a personalized experience, housing tours, guided student tours, and/or student panels.
