According to Fuel, a provider of personalized learning courses, that is the largest number of courses approved by any online course provider.

The university system's review board has said the courses satisfy its "a-g" requirements, meaning that potential applicants who take online or blended courses must pass 15 college-preparatory courses in seven areas (a to g), and they are certified for entry to the university.

The seven "a-g" academic areas are:
  • History or social science;
  • English;
  • Math;
  • Lab science;
  • Foreign language (other than English);
  • Visual or performing arts; and
  • College-preparatory elective.
The UC online course review board, according to the university, "aims to ensure that students have access to a broad range of high-quality online courses that maintain the 'human touch' and integrity of assessment."
