Didn't include dual enrollment class on UC application

junie_fangjunie_fang 11 replies6 threads Junior Member
So in the fall semester of senior year, I took a dual enrollment class called Introduction to Marketing. However, I had to stop going to class because I had to take care of my paralyzed uncle every day after school, resulting in an FW. I didn't include the class on my UC application or high school transcript because the program I was in said that it wasn't required. Introduction to Marketing does not give me UC credits nor was it a requirement for my A-G classes. I'm scared this might get me rescinded from UC Santa Cruz. I dodged a bullet once because of a huge mistake I made but I don't know if I would be able to dodge one again. Help!

    You should still email UC Santa Cruz and let them know you missed listing the course on your application. Since it is not an a-g course requirement and not UC transferable, it will not make a difference but better safe than sorry.

    They will not rescind you for this.

    I submitted a grade issue form, however, I wrote that I did not include it on my high school transcript instead of on my UC application. I don't know if I should email them again. Also because I received an FW, so I was scared of being rescinded even though it is not UC credits. Should I shoot them an email explaining the situation more in detail?

    There is no harm in sending a follow up email to explain the situation more fully.

    On the grade issue form, I reported that I received an F/D on a course I've taken as well as "other" and explained the situation in the comments/explanatory area.

    This is the email I plan to write:
    "I submitted a grade issue form for a dual enrollment class I took in my Senior fall semester. However, because of the 100-word limit, I was not able to add the fact that I did not include it in my UC application as well. I also did not select "I am reporting a change in my coursework from what I listed on my application". The program I was enrolled in for dual enrollment explained that it was not required of us to add the dual enrollment classes onto our transcripts or college applications, it was our choice. Although I received an FW for the class, it is not UC transferable and is not required for my A-G courses. Please let me know what I can do."
    (Is this a good explanatory email?)

    For other questions I have: UCSC won't rescind me for having an FW in a dual enrollment class that's not required? Should I submit another form in case because I forgot to include some things in the first form?
    Thank you so much for helping me, I never had much information about how to apply for the UC system.

    I would send the email and UCSC should reply if they want more information or if they want you to submit another grade form for the FW. Even if the courses are not transferable or non a-g courses, if they are on your college and/or HS transcript which are required to be submitted upon enrolling, they should be disclosed.

    But they won't rescind me because of my FW in an optional and non UC transferable dual enrollment class?

    No, the FW should not be a problem but I am not UCSC admissions. Most schools will be more lenient due to the Corona Virus issues.

    Here is UCSC’s provisional admission policy:
    In accepting admission at UCSC, you agree that you will:
    1). Maintain a level of academic achievement consistent with your previous coursework, in your fall and spring courses of your last year of school (as listed on your UC application) as preparation for success in college. A decline in GPA by a full grade point may result in the cancellation of your admission.

    2) Earn a grade of C or higher in all fall and spring courses (or equivalent for other grading systems).
    If you have already earned a grade of D or F (or equivalent for other grading systems) in your senior year (fall or spring), or if your overall GPA in your senior year (fall or spring) is a grade point below your previous academic performance, you have not met this condition of your admission. Immediately notify Undergraduate Admissions (UA) of any D or F grades as instructed below. Doing so may allow UA the discretion to provide you with options (if appropriate) to maintain your admission. Notifications must be made through the Schedule Change/Grade Issues Form .

    3). Complete all “in-progress” and “planned” coursework as listed on your application. Immediately notify Undergraduate Admissions of any changes in your “in-progress” or “planned” coursework, including attendance at a school different from that listed on your application.
    Your senior-year courses listed on your application were taken into consideration when selecting you for admission. Any changes you have made to your senior year coursework must be communicated to and approved by UA. Failure to notify UA may result in the cancellation of your admission. Notifications must be made through the Schedule Change/Grade Issues Form.

    4). Provide all official transcripts on or before July 1, 2020 to Undergraduate Admissions. Official transcripts must be electronically submitted or postmarked by the July 1 deadline. (Beginning in May, the MyUCSC portal will contain the list of transcripts required from you.)

    You must arrange to have an official, final high school transcript or equivalent showing your date of graduation and final spring term grades and any college/university official transcripts sent to Undergraduate Admissions, either electronically or via mail. An official transcript is one that UA receives directly from the institution, either electronically or in a sealed envelope, with appropriate identifying information and authorized signature indicating the exact date of graduation. If you receive a GED or CHSPE or other high school completion equivalent, an official copy of the results is required.

    For any college course(s) attempted or completed, regardless of location, an official transcript from the college is required; the course(s) must appear on the original college transcript. Even if a college course or courses are posted on your official high school transcript, a separate official college transcript is required. It is required even if you do not wish to receive UCSC credit for the course. If it later comes to our attention that you attempted or completed a college course at a college or university not listed on your application, you no longer meet this condition of your admission.

    An official transcript sent via mail must be postmarked no later than July 1 . If your school is not able to meet the deadline, please have a school official call 831-459-4008

    5) Provide all official test scores by July 15, 2020.
