High School Students

We Specialize in Running Starts.

Many high school students are already taking steps to earn college credit, and some have even taken undergraduate classes before enrolling in a university. If you have a strong academic background, and can show that you are ready for a UC class, UC Online provides an excellent opportunity to expand your options by gaining transferable college credit.

Through UC Online, you can earn credits from this world-renowned UC system before you even start college. Our classes are taught by established UC professors, and range from traditional prerequisite classes to innovative subjects. These credits transfer not only to any UC campus, but may even transfer to other colleges and universities.

Please note that registering for one of the UC Online classes does not admit you to a University of California campus. Also, participating in this educational program does not in itself provide preference in admission to the University of California. Students interested in applying to UC should refer to the UC Admissions website or the admissions office of the UC campus they wish to attend for details about the admissions process.

In order to successfully register for a UC Online class, all high school students will be required to provide a Statement of Support to show that you have the signed support of an educator.
