UCHS Centurion Counseling Department
This year there are a few program changes in our Counseling Office! In order to better serve the students, parents and staff, we will have a Counselor-On-Call at all times! When you arrive in the counseling office you will be greeted by one of our counselors, where you will be able to make appointments and get your questions answered.
Parents/guardians may also make appointments to see their child's counselor, by phone or email. We will attempt to return phone calls and emails within 24 hours whenever possible.
Counselors are assigned alphabetically by the student's last name:
A-ELMI: Michelle Barnier: x224 email@example.com
END-LIP: Sherryl Godfrey: x223 firstname.lastname@example.org
LIT-ROCHA: Naomi Paige: x219 email@example.com
ROD-Z: Teem Osborn: x222 firstname.lastname@example.org
REGISTRAR: Gwen Shoemaker:x217 email@example.com

What tests do I need to take to get into college? Visit the website for the universities and colleges where you will be applying, to ensure you meet testing deadlines.
What about entry requirements to community college?
What are entry testing requirements for CSU? California State Universities require SAT or ACT with writing.
What are entry requirements for UC? The University of California system require the SAT or ACT with writing, plus two SAT Subject Tests. Some campuses prefer certain subject tests depending on campus and major. See the individual UC sites for more information.
What tests do I need for private college? Private colleges and universities require the SAT Reasoning or ACT with writing. Some private schools do not require the writing test. See the individual websites for each individual school for admission requirements. It is best to take the writing portion when you test, in case it is required. If it is not, it will not be considered or count against you.
Highly selective private colleges and universities also require two or three SAT Subject Tests. See individual school websites for admission requirements. Some campuses prefer certain subject test depending on major.
Community colleges do not require any entrance exams. However, you will be required to take math and English placement tests when applying to determine your levels for course enrollment.
Do I have to take AP Tests? No. If you are enrolled in an Advanced Placement (AP) course you are not required to take the AP test for that course in the spring to earn the weighted credit. Advanced Placement (AP) tests will be given at University City High School in May, and if you are interested in potentially earning college credit for the AP course(s) you are taking, you will need to sign up in the financial office during the registration period. For more information see your AP teacher, visit the College Board website (www.collegeboard.com), or see Ms.Barnier in counseling.
