Thank you to the French American International School and their teachers for such excellent and thorough work on these course submissions.


DP and CP schools may now add these new courses to their school A-G course list. The UC Course Management Portal will close on August 31. If you have not already done so, please check your school or district A-G course list for accuracy, and make any necessary changes, deletions, or additions. Your list should reflect current course offerings for the 2023-2024 school year. An accurate profile of your school’s academic and IB offerings is essential for students in the UC and CSU admission process. In addition, schools should NOT use the same course title for more than one year as UC will not accept it, and it may disadvantage your students in the college application process.


More detailed A-G information for IB schools in California is available on the CAWS website.

UC A-G Course Management Assistance for DP/CP Schools - Dot Battenfeld, January 2023


Happy New Year to all DP and CP Schools!


The UC High School Articulation Office will open their A-G Course Management Portal on February 1. At this time, you will be able to submit new courses or request course revisions for the 2023-2024 school year. The primary phase for submissions will be February 1-June 30. Any new IB courses or IB course revisions need to be submitted through the IB Organization A-G course management portal. Please contact Dorothy Battenfeld, CAWS University Liaison, if there are IB courses your school needs to have submitted that are not on the IB UC A-G Course List.


If your school or district needs assistance with understanding and using the UC A-G Course Management Portal, UC is offering a series of webinars this semester:
