Fall 2022 Admissions Update from UC
UC Question of the Month
Answer: We are not anticipating any changes to the PIQs for freshmen or transfers for the fall 2022 application.
Question: If a student took an AP exam but did not receive a passing score, do they need to report it on their application and submit the score report anyway?
Answer: Students are not obligated to report non-passing scores on AP exams, but there is no downside to reporting them. Non-passing scores do not affect an admission decision. If the student has no passing AP scores at all, then an official score report is not necessary. If the student has passed even one exam with a 3, 4, or 5, then they should arrange for the College Board to send their official score report (which usually includes non-passing scores) to the campus where they plan to enroll. AP exam scores are due no later than July 15, with the exception of scores from exams taken in May/June 2021 which UC is aware will be delayed.

HIP (Northrop Grumman) Internship
The High School Involvement Partnership (HIP) mentoring program was created to inspire and prepare high school students for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) pathways to fill the future workforce need for diverse innovative leaders
To apply, students should be interested in Engineering/Computer Science and have some experience in the field (i.e. taken a related course). They also must have a minimum Unweighted GPA of a 3.25 or higher. There are only 8 spots for students in the district, so the process is very competitive.
Applications will be available at a later date. If you are interested in the 2021-2022 HIP Internship program, please add your name to the interest list.
If you have additional questions, please contact Mr. Ruben Mata at email@example.com through June 18. During the summer months, you can reach out to Emily Stevenson, our District CTE Counselor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
