(2) UC Admission Requirements (for 2013)

The University of California system guarantees admission to California students if:
  • The student ranks in the top 9 percent of California high school students according to the Admissions Index below. (This is called "Eligible in the Statewide Context".)
  • The student ranks in the top 9 percent of graduating class at the student's high school based on the grade point average (GPA) obtained on 11 of the 15 "a-g" courses required for UC admissions by the end of 11th grade. (This is called "Eligible in the Local Context".)
Guaranteed admission means the student will be offered admission to a UC campus. However, it does not guarantee acceptance to the student's campus of choice.
