Frequently Asked Questions
No. The UC and CSU admissions offices weigh California Community College courses that meet A-G requirements on a 5.0 scale and are contractually required to accept courses listed on www.assist.org for degree and general education requirements. The UC and CSU systems are not contractually required to accept AP and Honors courses for degree and general education requirements.
Each K-12 district must make its own determination about which college courses they choose to allow to meet which graduation requirements. Meet with your counselor or assistant principal of instruction to learn more about which courses your K-12 district will accept for core graduation requirements.
The UC and CSU admission offices will weigh any community college courses taken that meet A-G requirements on a 5.0 scale. If your local high school has not provided a 5.0 scale for these courses, the UC and CSU admission offices will recalculate the GPA from your K-12 district transcript to reflect the 5.0 scale for A-G courses.
While every student’s academic path is unique, we recommend Guidance 3: Career Exploration and Life Planning as a great starting point for your college career. You will have a full semester of contact with a college counselor in this class from whom you can ask questions about college pathways and who can help acclimate you to the college experience. This course also meets area G in A-G as well as a core CSU general education requirement in “Lifelong Learning and Self Development.”
In rare cases, if the K-12 district and the college deem the student’s case valid for admission, a middle school student may attend Chaffey College. Middle school students and their parents must complete the same agreement form paperwork as high school students in order to take college courses. This means that a middle school principal or designee (usually a counselor) must sign to endorse the participation of the student in college courses. Additionally, the student must complete an appeal, which will include a letter from the child’s K-12 district advocating for the child’s participation in college. A Chaffey College appeal committee will make the final determination regarding the child’s participation in college.
