Boost Your GPA with Online High School Courses This Summer!

Freaking out because you need to repeat a class you didn’t pass during the school year? Need to squeeze in another AP class to boost the rigor of your schedule or improve your GPA before applying to the UCs? Enroll now for summer online classes!

Remember that, to improve your GPA, all non-passing grades MUST be repeated PRIOR to the start of senior year! All UC-approved A-G (including AP and Honors) courses completed AFTER the end of freshman year and BEFORE the start of senior year (that means all courses completed during the summer, in addition to the ones completed during sophomore and junior years) will be included in the GPA for admission evaluation!

Your local community college is usually your best bet (no cost 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 no hoops to jump through, just pay and take the classes).

You can find the most current list of online high schools with UC-approved A-G courses (including AP/Honors) here. This is not a comprehensive list and only includes schools that 1) have current, active A-G Course List with the UCs; 2) offer students the option to take individual courses (rather than requiring full-time enrollment); 3) issue a separate transcript (so there’s no need to get your home high school involved if that is an issue); and 4) are reasonably priced (I excluded the ones that charge more than $1,000 per course). For each school there is a direct link to the UC-approved A-G course list; make sure you verify the classes you want to take are on the list before enrolling.
