Coalition calls for greater focus on computer science in UC, Cal State admissions – Los Angeles Times

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and a coalition of high-profile business and academic leaders are pressing UC and Cal State to adopt new admissions requirements for math that would include computer science as an option. 

The appeal was in a letter sent Wednesday to the Board of Admissions and Relations with Schools, a committee within the UC Academic Senate that oversees admissions of undergraduate students. 

Currently, to be admitted to a UC or Cal State campus, high school students must complete 15 “a-g” courses with a grade of C or better. The math requirement includes algebra and geometry, with a third year of advanced math such as calculus and trigonometry.
