UC ADMISSIONS

If you're interested in entering the University of California as a freshman you'll have to satisfy these new admission requirements:

  1. Complete a minimum of 15 college-preparatory courses ("a-g" courses), with at least 11 finished prior to your senior year.
     
    The 15 A-G courses are

    a. History/social science

    2 years

    b. English

    4 years

    c. Mathematics

    3 years

    d. Laboratory science

    2 years

    e. Language other than English

    2 years

    f. Visual and performing arts

    1 year

    g. College-preparatory elective
    (chosen from the subjects listed above or another course approved by the university)

    1 year

  2. Earn a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better in these courses with no grade lower than a C.

  3. Take the ACT With Writing or the SAT Reasoning Test by December of your senior year. 
     
  4. How many college/university courses may a student take? Will the grades be weighted in the GPA calculation for freshman admission?

    High school students may take as many college/university courses as they wish. When calculating the GPA to determine if a student's eligibility meets/exceeds the minimum GPA requirement, we limit the number of honors points to 4 courses (8 semesters), with no more than 2 courses (four semesters) from 10th grade. This total includes college-level courses in the "a-g" college-preparatory subjects that are transferable to UC.

High School Grades

D and F Grades:
If you repeat a course in which you earned a D or F in an "a-g" course, the original grade will not be included in the GPA calculation, and the new grade will be used. If you repeat a course in which you initially earned a grade of C, the second grade will not be used.
