How do I know if the UCs received my test scores?

JeSuisJeSuis Registered User Posts: 1,930 Senior Member
I sent my ACT and SAT scores to UC San Diego on Nov. 28. How do I know if the UCs have received these scores? When I log into my account, it says in red that I need to arrange for the testing agencies to send my score. Does that mean my scores have not been received yet?

    Go to 'My Sat Scores'. Look on right margin until you see a link to 'Score Send Reports/History' or something similar to that. It should say when it was sent. Mines was sent a few days before the scores were released to us, but I put in a request for it to be sent weeks before. Mines were sent on November 21, 2010; I submitted it around early November.

    I think what Jesuis meant was how do we know if the UCs we applied to got our scores yet? Like the matched it up. Not when it was sent. Please does anyone else have the answer? I'm wondering the same thing as Jesuis.

    i believe it takes them 2-3 weeks to get it out to the UC's.. so after 1 month they should get it, but keep the receipt just in case !!

    Okay. I didn't realize it took that long. When the UCs receive my scores, will there be a way for me to know?
  • AdamantoiseAdamantoise Registered User Posts: 248 Junior Member
    I assume when it says sent, that means they received the scores. The only other way to find out would probably mean contacting the admissions office directly.

    What I was saying previously indicated that scores aren't 'sent' to UCs until a couple weeks later, when your test scores are published on collegeboard.com.

    You can log into the UC Application Status website at https://www.ucapplication.net/ucap/Ucap_student.jsp about 5 weeks after you submitted your application to see whether the UCs have received your scores.

    ^^What happens if they haven't received your scores? Are you penalized/will they not look at your application?
  • AskMsSunAskMsSun - Posts: 1,767 Senior Member
    You have to wait 5 weeks for the application processing service to update the system.

    Check with College Board or ACT to verify whether the scores were sent. Beyond that, you just have to wait.

    Speaking of sending scores to UCs, I just got an email confirming my application to UCSD, and apparently...

    "Be sure to have your ACT and SAT test scores reported by the testing agency by January 30. You only need to have your official score report sent to one UC campus - it will be available to all the UC campuses to which you applied."

    I sent them to all 6 that I applied to...and the scores were sent Dec 4. Is there a way to get my money back? I feel so silly atm....

    It takes a long time for SAT/ACT scores to get into their system. I remember that vividly last year.
