International applicants are not exempt from the ACT/SAT exam requirement. All freshman applicants must take either the ACT (plus the writing section) or the SAT (including the essay portion, if taken March 2016 or later) by the December of the year they file the application.
Note: Applicants to the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science also are strongly encouraged to take the following SAT Subject Tests: Math Level 2 and a science test (Biology E/M, Chemistry, or Physics) that is closely related to the applicant's intended major.
International students whose language of instruction is not English are also required to take either the Test of English as as Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
