After the California State University system formally ditched the SAT and ACT as admissions requirements last week, the state is now the first—and only—in the United States to have no public university accepting standardized test scores for admissions.
Now the system is creating a new set of eligibility criteria, the first change since 1965. The plan is to focus on student high school grades and life experiences.
