Adding a UCCI course to an “a-g” course list

The UC Curriculum Integration (UCCI) courses have been granted UC program status allowing the program to submit their curriculum for UC approval on behalf of all California high schools and districts. The complete list of the "a-g" approved UCCI courses is available on the “a-g” Course List website by searching for “UCCI” in the High Schools, Programs and Community Colleges section. High schools, districts and programs may add a UCCI course to their “a-g” course list as a previously approved program course.
