UC schools - Are the required subjects, REQUIRED?

<p>I'm applying to UCSD and maybe UCLA and I noticed that both schools require 2 years of foreign language.
I've only done one year.</p>

<p>Do they not even look at your app if you havent fulfilled the requirements?</p>

<p>You have to fulfill all requirements to apply. Maybe do it on line. 1 year of language will hurt at any good school. 2 years isn't great either.</p>

<p>Ok thanks. I'll be looking into the online courses.
I'm planning to take a sat2 language test in december (i selfstudied for a long period of time). If I get a good mark in that, can that waive the required 2 years?</p>

<p>thats going to be really hard with only 1 year...unless your a fluent speaker , who knows.</p>

<p>Yup, the UC reqirements are pretty much the bone requirements for any college. Many go far beyond it.</p>

<p>hmm that sucks..
I'm an international applicant and I had no idea that 2 years of foreign language was the minimum requirement for many colleges until a year ago and i wasnt allowed to continue my french classes from 9th grade.</p>

<p>Do you think I should even bother to apply to UCSD? (or any UCs for that matter?)</p>

<p>It may be different for international students - depending where you're from, either English or your native language may be considered "foreign language", so you may have 2 years without realizing it. </p>

<p>Either e-mail or phone the schools you're interested in and ask them.</p>

<p>Thanks Chedva.
I'll contact the UCs.</p>
