Senior/Parent College Application News 

The deadline to submit your UC and CSUs is fast approaching! Be sure to submit them well before 11:59 pm Monday, Nov. 30. You should send your SAT/ACT scores now if you haven't already done so. To avoid paying unnecessarily for several score reports, for the UCs, send your SAT/ACT scores to just one UC, and by doing this, all the UCs will receive the scores. For the CSUs, if reporting SAT scores, contact and enter just one CSU Mentor Code - 3594 - and all the CSUs will receive your scores. If reporting ACT scores to the CSUs, contact, submit to one CSU, then use the "ACT Score Manager" in CSUMentor to release the scores to other CSUs. As you know, you self-report your classes and grades and will only send your transcript to the UC or CSU after you have accepted their offer of admission in spring. If you need technical help on the UC app, contact (800) 207-1710 or For the CSUs, contact 



If you need help on your UC personal statement/college app essays, college list, or any part of the college application process, contact Ms. Leary at for an appointment or drop by the CCC on A or A/t days 9:30-1:30. Good luck!
