mirabillis Posted September 11, 2016 Share Posted September 11, 2016 (edited) There are so many threads on A-G requirements for entrance into UC/CSU schools. I have been scouring them. I am very nearly tearing my hair out over it all. From what I have determined, it seems I can fulfill this requirement in a number of ways, short of joining a charter that has carte blanche a-g approval status. Please confer/deny if I am mistaken. 1. Take A-G approved courses at online providers:I have found many providers but very little reviews here.Here is a link to all 73 online providers at the UCOP website: https://hs-articulation.ucop.edu/agcourselist#/list/search/institution?f=institutionTypeName%7COnline%20Publisher%3B Here are the ones I have looked into/seen mentioned - many more in link above. Silicon Valley Online High School Florida Virtual School BYU High School Suite UCScout Art of Problem Solving ChemAdvantage (affiliated with PAHomeschoolers) Northwestern EDU Virtual High School K-12 International Academy Stanford Online High School (expensive though) 2. Take AP classes (even if non A-G approved) and get 3+ on AP Test Thanks Quark for clarification. College Board's AP program is a-g approved, just fyi:https://hs-articulation.ucop.edu/agcourselist#/list/details/4482/ 3. Take SAT Subject tests on courses that were non A-G approved and achieve good scores Thanks Quark for clarification.http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/counselors/freshman/minimum-requirements/subject-requirement/ US Hist 550 World Hist 540 Literature 560 Math LVL 1 570 Math LVL 2 480 Bio 540 Chem 530 Physics 530 Span/Chin/Ital 520 German/Jap 510 French 540 Hebrew 470 Korean 500 Latin 530 **No subject tests for Visual Arts or Geometry 4. High SAT scores on Writing, etc can retroactively validate 4 years of English... ? Thanks Quark again for clarification old SAT Writing 560 = 3 yrs new SAT W&L 31 = 3 yrs old SAT Writing 680 = 4 yrs new SAT W&L 36 = 4 yrs 5. Dual enrollment at CC - validates that subject for A-G? Generally speaking, a grade of C or better in a course of 3 or more semester (4 or more quarter) units...see details at link below. http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/counselors/freshman/minimum-requirements/subject-requirement/ For DE courses at CC, search for the institution here and it will pull up a list of courses that are approved for that particular CC (note that the course is usually a 3-unit or more transferable course, and be sure to check under the current year): https://hs-articulat...rch/institution This is what I gather so far. Thanks for the additions! And if so, who has experience in any of the above A-G approved providers? Perhaps we can keep this file going to help us Californians out trying for UC schools... and still maintaining our independence! **Please list your specific course choices for 9, 10, 11 & 12- we can help each other out this way!!** Edited September 11, 2016 by mirabillis 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
