UC Approval for Online Courses
The UC faculty is in the process of establishing a policy to determine the acceptability of courses offered by
online providers to meet the a-g requirements. Currently Laurel Springs offers courses that fall under two UC
1. Laurel Springs is a UC Approved Online Course Provider. A list of approved courses can be found on
the UC Doorways school list under Laurel Springs Online. The approval process is ongoing and not all
submitted courses have yet been reviewed and approved.
2. Laurel Springs’ courses not yet listed on the UC Doorways school list under Laurel Springs Online can
be approved by the principal of Laurel Springs School as being comparable to classroom based courses.
Principals of other schools may accept the decision of Laurel Springs about the comparability of courses
or perform their own comparison.
Courses deemed comparable by Laurel Springs are designated as such in our school catalog.
Once the UC faculty has a chance to approve sufﬁcient online course work, only approved courses appearing
on the UC Doorways lists will be accepted. In the meantime, UC will recognize the completion of college
preparatory online courses using the same practice it applies to other courses taken away from the high school
site (e.g., language schools, summer extension or enrichment programs, study aboard programs, etc.).
Important Notice – Online Laboratory Science and Visual and Performing Arts:
• UC will not accept any online courses in the area of visual and performing arts (VPA).
• A-g credit for online laboratory science courses is granted only if the student passes the SAT subject test
with a 540 or better (or) takes an AP Lab Science Exam and passes with a score of 3, 4 or 5.
In summary, if a student is planning to take any online courses, the principal by signing below, certiﬁes that this
online course is comparable to the college prep course offered at his or her school. This certiﬁcation can reﬂect
an agreement with the comparability established by the principal of Laurel Springs School or an independent
