UC Admissions • Only the grades you earn in "A-G" subjects in the 10th and 11th are used to calculate your GPA. • 9th grade courses can be used to meet the Subject Requirement if you earn a grade of C or better…however, these grades will not be used to calculate your GPA. • UC’s assign extra points for up to four units of UC-certified honors level and advanced placement courses taken in the last three years of high school. A=5 points, B=4 points, C=3 points • No more than two years of UC-approved honors level courses taken in the tenth grade may be given extra points. • A grade of D in an honors or advanced placement course does not earn extra points. • Students admitted to UC share a high level of academic ability and potential. Most students rank in the top 12.5 percent of high school graduates. The majority of students are from California. The number of applicants often exceeds the spaces available for a particular campus or major. Therefore, meeting the minimum admissions requirements is not enough to gain admission to many UC campuses and programs.
UC Admissions • Students must submit the following test scores: • SAT Reasoning or ACT • the best scores will be taken into account • the ACT composite score must be submitted. • SAT Subject Tests – no longer required • Your personal statement now consists of two questions - maximum of 1000 words total - students choose the length of each response, but the shorter one should be no shorter than 250 words. Read directions carefully for submitting your essays in the proper formats! • Complete one application for all campuses. • Admissions criteria based largely on GPA and test scores. • The minimum required GPA varies by campus/program. • All testing (SAT, ACT) must be done by the end of December. • The application fee is $70 - fee waivers available.

The admissions policies at private schools are also more personal, looking to student promise, talent. Private school application deadlines are not uniform. • Tuition and fees can be in excess of $30,000 a year – however, roughly 8 out of 10 students who attend private schools receive some forms of financial aid!
