Associate in Arts programs do not require the UPCAT for admission. However, applicants must pass a test given by the college—a talent test in the College of Arts and Letters (CAL), College of Fine Arts (CFA) and the College of Music (CM), or a sports readiness test in the College of Human Kinetics (CHK). Application to any of these programs is made directly to the college concerned.
