- High School Transcripts
- Advanced Placement (AP) scores for English Composition, Literature, or Mathematics exam with a score of 3 or better
- Advanced Placement scores for all other courses
- Early Assessment Program (EAP) for Math and/or English with a score of Standard Exceeded, on the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) exam or Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC).
- SAT of 550 or higher in SAT Reading & Writing or ACT score of 22 or higher on the ACT English
Students should make sure to bring copies of their documents when meeting with a counselor to take advantage of Multiple Measures.
