Academic Planning

Guide to the College Admission Process

Meet with Mrs. Carrillo  for your college application.  UC/CSU students self report all "a-g" courses and grades must be reported. 

The CSUs will consider course grades of "credit" or "pass" as fulfilling "a-g" requirements for those courses completed during winter, spring, or summer 2020 terms. All other coursework must be graded and a grade of C- or better must be earned for the course to satisfy "a-g" requirements. Grades of credit/pass or no credit/no pas will not be included in the calculation of high school GPA. Click here for more details.

Remember, GPA calculation is different from a-g requirements.  Get a copy of your unoffical transcript to self-report grades by semester for PCA.  Check here for the checklist before meeting with your counselor.

Common Application you don't self-report, get an 'unoffical copy of your transcript.'  Come prepared. Click here to know what you need for the Common Application. Click here for college requirements worksheet.
