SAPEP Mission Statement
The University of California’s Student Academic Preparation and Educational Partnerships (SAPEP) programs seek to raise student achievement levels generally and to close achievement gaps between groups of students throughout the K-20 pipeline. The goal of SAPEP programs is to work in partnership with K-12, the business sector, community organizations and other institutions of higher education, so that a higher proportion of California’s young people, including those who are first-generation, socioeconomically disadvantaged and English-language learners, are prepared for postsecondary education, pursue graduate and professional school opportunities and/or achieve success in the workplace.

SCOUT Mission Statement
As a SAPEP program, Scout’s mission is to reach out to educationally disadvantaged students across the state, raising achievement levels and closing achievement gaps between groups of students. Every SAPEP program works to achieve this goal in different ways, and Scout’s focus is on offering high school and middle school classes online.

Your Roadmap to College
There are many steps from high school to the University of California or another college or university. Scout is a way to improve your chances of reaching college by increasing your subject knowledge or college eligibility but it is not admission to UC or a promise of future admission. To learn about applying to UC, see the How to Apply to UC link.

Whether you benefit from Scout or not, if you're interested in entering the University of California as a freshman, you'll have to complete a minimum of 15 college-preparatory courses with at least 11 finished prior to the beginning of your senior year. See UC Eligibility Requirements [link to “a-g” requirements] for more information. You’ll also need to earn a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better (3.4 if you're a nonresident) in these courses with no grade lower than a C.

Additionally, you’ll need to meet the examination requirement by taking the ACT Plus Writing or the SAT Reasoning Test by December of your senior year. UC doesn’t require SAT Subject Tests, but certain programs on some campuses recommend them, and you can use subject tests to satisfy the "a-g" requirements listed above.

Important Note about UC Admissions:
Participating in this educational program does not in itself provide preference in admission to the University of California. Students interested in applying to UC should refer to the UC Admissions website or the admissions office of the UC campus they wish to attend for details about the admissions process.
