Canadian Student Applying to UC

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I am going on to my final year of high school and I wanted to apply to UC Berkeley and UCLA for engineering. Currently I am working towards my Ontario High school diploma (along with IB ofcourse!)

But here's my main concern:


So for UC admissions, it says the "accepted" courses that I had to take in HS are all IB HL subjects. On top of that, it says I need two years of History/Social Science courses or 4 semesters of it. Being in Ontario, I only had to take two semesters (Geo and Canadian History) and I'm taking Econ HL, which apparently doesn't qualify as a Social Science.

Can anybody help this confused Canadian? :S

I would contact the admissions offices at Cal (UC Berkeley) and UCLA. Since you're from a different country, you have different requirements in high school, and they probably will recognize that.

There are links to contact the admissions offices here : http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/freshman/requirements/admission-by-exception/index.html

Cal and UCLA are great schools, I'm going to apply to them as well.

Good luck!

Alright, thanks for the reply! I got it solved at college confidential so no worries :)

Good luck to you too, the acceptance rate for international students are dreadfully low at both Cal and UCLA though...
