What is a UC GPA?

<p>I assume that the UC's recalculate your GPA, but how do they do it? I wanted to convert my GPA to their scale since im applying to one of the UC's. Can someone tell me how to do this conversion?</p>

<p>You take your grades from 10th and 11th grades and calculated the weighted GPA, adding 1 bonus point for honors, AP, IB, and college courses.</p>

<p>what if your school doesnt offer AP's (they are tough and are AP level, but they arent called AP's, and all the classes I have taken are honors because all school classes are). Do I still add 1 point to all the classes since its school policy for all classes to be honors? also, we dont have weighted gpa's cuz our school doesnt rank. (haha the texas school system is wierd).</p>

<p>The Honors courses have to be UC certified. UC looks at each school in CA and certifies or not. Since you are out of state, I doubt it will count. From the website: </p>

<p>"To qualify for extra points, high school courses must be in the following academic fields: history, English, advanced mathematics, laboratory science, language other than English (foreign language), visual and performing arts (beyond the introductory level), computer science and social science, and they must be certified as honors courses by the University." with the part of the sentence after the comma in italics.</p>

<p>Nonresidents
There are two paths to UC eligibility for nonresidents at the freshman level. The first is the same as described under Eligibility in the Statewide Context and the second is the same as described under Eligibility by Examination Alone, with the following exceptions: </p>

<p>Scholarship Requirement: If your GPA is 3.4 or above, you satisfy the minimum Scholarship Requirement if you achieve the test score indicated in the Eligibility Index under nonresidents.</p>

<p>Admission by Examination Alone: You must earn a composite score of 31 or higher on the ACT or a total score on the SAT I of at least 1400. Your total score on the three SAT II: Subject Tests must be at least 1850 with a minimum score of 530 on each test.
You can calc your UC GPA yourself, look under scolarship requirements:

<p>You can calc your UC eligibility requirements yourself, be sure to use the non-resident chart:

<p>However eligibility does not equate to admissions, additional admissions criteria and freshman class profile for each UC here:
