UC & CSU Scholarship & Exam Requirements
Eligibility for admission is based on the grade point average in the "a-g" subject requirements and the scores on either the SAT examination given by the College Board or the ACT test given by the American College Testing Program. The CSU’s require the SAT or the ACT without writing. The UC’s require the SAT and the ACT with writing.
Grade Point Calculations
For both the UC and the CSU, the grade point average calculation will include only those grades earned in UC approved courses (courses followed by a P, H or AP) which are taken during the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades of high school.
The UC and the CSU will award honors points in calculating the GPA for up to eight semesters of UC-approved honors-level courses and AP courses taken in 11th and 12th grades, including up to two UC- approved honors courses and AP courses completed in the 10th grade. For additional information regarding potential academic honors, please refer to the Student/Parent Handbook.
