15 A-G Courses

Take at least 7 of the required A-G courses in 11th and 12th grade.

Every year the Director of Undergraduate Admissions for the University of California will send an Update Letter request via email to every California high school asking them to submit updates to the schools' UC certified "a-g" courses list.

Repeating vs. Validating
What is the difference between repeating and validating a course?
Repeating a course occurs when a student earns a D or F grade and then retake a course with the same curriculum to clear the lower grade.

The new grade earned will be used in the GPA calculation.

For UC: All “a-g” coursework (original and repeats) should be reported on the application.

For CSU: Report the repeated grade only; or indicate the original grade if the repeat is in progress/planned.
Repeating
Validating
What is validation?

Most validation rules are the same for CSU and UC.
Validating
Applies to ONLY to courses in mathematics and (LOTE) languages other than English

Completion of an advanced course (C grade or higher) in area of sequential knowledge; student is presumed to have completed the lower-level coursework.

Example: Spanish 2 is completed with a C
grade; Spanish 1 is validated by Spanish 2.

Can also be used to clear subject deficiency in which a grade of D or F was earned

Example: Algebra I is completed with a D grade; Algebra II is completed with a C grade; Algebra I is validated by Algebra II

Grade of D or F remains in the GPA calculation.
