Admissions Advice

After acceptance

Hi this is kind of a very dumb question to ask however, I included a college course as planned on my UC app but ended up failing the course in my senior semester due to poor health. Will a university revoke my admission based on that despite a strong overall highschool academic profile in senior year? Note: I am in all AP and IB course and have a very strong EC profile atm. I also am aware that I obviously can't receive transfer credit for that course if I received a NP on it. I'm just worried a university will revoke my admission based on that one class.

So you included the course on your app but UC will know your F grade when they see the Mid-year report? If that's the case, it's important that you reach out to them and use this time to explain your health situation before they find out the score rather than making an excuse after they see the grade. Better to ask for forgiveness than to bury it under the rug I would think.

I have NP on a community college course that wasn't required for me to take I just felt like taking it (bc I'm dumb). I included it as a course that was planned for senior year... Could I just ask for the course to not be considered?

Hi, yes, I think that would be the safest thing to do is to ask for the course not to be considered since you were ill and it is an elective course outside of your high school. I think they would be sympathetic to that.

It would probably be a good idea to contact the school and explain the situation with your health and why you failed the course. I don't think they would revoke your admission over that.

If you have already told the school that you planned to take it then I don't see how you could hide your grade. I suppose you could ask the school if they could remove that class from your application but I don't know how well that would work.

Assuming they do want you to send your grade, just explain that you failed because of your health and I would imagine the school will be understanding. Just clearly explain what happened as soon as you have reported your grade.

Good luck! :)
