California Public School Discount

California public school teachers have access to Plus courses for free. We verify California teaching credentials for access to Plus courses. Plus courses DO NOT require a promotion code, as they are set-up upon request by emailing ucscout@ucsc.edu.

California public school teachers and students can access Basic for free using a promotion code after filling out the form. In Basic, students obtain access to video lecture content only. Verified teachers can obtain access to the full course content. To get a promotion code for Basic courses, click the button below and fill out the form.

Plans & Pricing

Scout offers three different types of courses: Basic, Plus, and On Demand. In Basic and Plus, your school provides the teacher. In On Demand, Scout provides the teacher.

On Demand

On Demand is for students who need a UC Scout teacher. All of our teachers hold the appropriate California credentials to teach their respective subjects.

In On Demand, students can progress at their own pace, however, the course must be completed by the section end date. A student is welcome to enroll in a class after the section start date.

Each semester includes the pre-recorded video lectures, assignments, tests, quizzes, midterm, and final exams, per semester.

Plus

FOR SCHOOLS: Plus is our most popular plan that is free for California public school students and teachers. This plan is used by schools that want access to all the LMS tools, have multiple students taking a course, or have students at different schools in the district taking the course with the same teacher.

Note: In Plus, the student and teacher are linked through the online classroom. Plus is not available for enrollment on our catalog as we set these sections up upon request. For more information contact ucscout@ucsc.edu.

Basic

Basic only contains video lectures for students! However, Basic is free for California public school students and teachers. Some use Basic as a full A-G approved course, but others use it to supplement face-to-face courses or to prep for AP tests.

In Basic, the student and teacher are not linked through the online classroom. The credentialed teacher must physically print and distribute the curriculum to the student if they are facilitating the course for credit.

* If the student intends to receive credit and a transcript for the course it will need to be taken in our On Demand plan at the cost of $399 per course/semester since Basic does not provide credit or a teacher.
