Freaking out because you need to repeat a class you didn’t pass from the fall semester? Need to squeeze in another AP class to boost the rigor of your schedule? Want to improve your GPA? Enroll now for spring online classes!
Keep in mind that your local community college is usually your best bet (free if your counselor signs off on the enrollment). Online high school courses tend to be pricey, but they serve as an alternative if you need them (there are usually fewer hoops to jump through, just pay and take the class).
Find the most current list of (somewhat) affordable online high school options here (the list includes links to the course catalog, pricing information, and UC-approved course list for each school). Always verify that the class you want to take is on the UC-approved course list before enrolling. There are other UC-approved schools, but the ones on my list: 1) have part-time enrollment options (you can take just one or two classes and not have to worry about admission or full-time enrollment); 2) will issue a separate transcript (so you don’t have to worry about your high school refusing to add the course to your transcript); and 3) offer courses that cost under $1,000 (yes, there are lots of online high schools that charge $1,000+ per class).
