UC A-G Course Submissions for 2013-2014

July 12, 2013

Dear California IB Coordinators/School Administrators,

Urgent update: UC A-G Course Submissions for 2013-2014

Please read this, and respond to Dorothy Battenfeld (ib.battenfeld@gmail.com) if your school intends to offer an IB course that is not on the IB Program approved A-G list.

The UC Office of Undergraduate Admissions has just revised the process by which IB courses will be reviewed. All new IB course submissions will enter a special queue set up for “program status” course review. UC believes this new process will make it easier for program status organizations to receive feedback more immediately, allow for new IB course submissions to be reviewed in batches, and speed up the process overall.

Course submissions will still be made through the A-G Online Update System and will be submitted through the IB Program access portal. Schools need to request an IB Program password from Dorothy Battenfeld, CAWS Board Member, University Recognition. CAWS will also review the course submissions your school submits before making the final submission to the UC.

Our goal is to have all courses submitted in a batch by August 26, at the latest. This will allow time for any resubmission as needed before the September 15 deadline.

To avoid resubmission, please be as thorough as possible with the course submission and follow the UC guidelines on their site. If you haven’t done this before, there are some exemplary course outlines, including for courses receiving honors designation, on the UC A-G website.

Once a course has been accepted and added to the IB Program list, any IB school can automatically add the course to their school A-G list.

If you have any questions, please contact Robin or Dorothy.
