CSUs and UCs will accept the December test results, but none later. DON'T forget to send them in! Take the tests early and often to increase your chances of getting good scores. 

As of this writing, the CSU schools DO NOT require an SAT or ACT essay, but the UC schools DO. Take the essay anyway so you have it in case you need it!

Registration deadlines expire at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time! That means 8:59 to you California kids!
