Many academically strong California juniors recently received forms from their high schools asking for permission to share their academic data with the University of California System in order to determine Eligibility in the Local Context (ELC). If you’ve received this form, congratulations! It means you are among the strongest students in your graduating high school class. With this statewide data it’s requested from you and your school, the UC system will identify the top 9% of students statewide, as well as the top 9% within each participating high school. In July, those rising seniors deemed top 9% in either pathway will be notified that they are guaranteed admission to the UC System. For more information on this route to a University of California school and additional details about the UC application process, check out our post on the Insider blog at blog.getintocollege.com.
