About the Digital Media Magnet
Starting in 2010 with one 9th grade class, Uni High's Digital Media Magnet is a new school that will have its first graduating class in the year 2013. All students eligible to enroll in LAUSD can apply.
Students take a two-year elective where they learn graphic design, animation, web design and page layout, giving them skills that apply to an ever growing media-rich society. Core subject teachers utilize different forms of technology and media skills integrated with the curriculum as well.
Though the magnet has a digital media focus, students must take all classes necessary to graduate high school and meet A-G college admission requirements. Honors and AP courses are offered to eligible students to ensure they maintain a rigorous academic course of studies.
Q: When will I find out if my child got accepted into University High School's Digital Media Magnet for the year 2014-15?
A: On April 1st you should receive a letter or email from the district letting you know. You must then accept or decline placement online. If you did not opt to do accept or decline online, then you must call the Magnet Office at (310) 914-3529, or email at [email protected] to let the Magnet Coordinator know your decision.
Q: If my child is not on the active list, will he or she be on the wait list?
A: Your child will be on the wait list of the school that you indicated as your first choice only.
Q: I missed the deadline, so can I still apply for the magnet?
A: Yes. You can apply online for a Space Available application by going to Create 2014-2015 Space Available Application on https://echoicesapplication.lausd.net. You can only apply to one school for this application.

Q: I put Uni's Digital Media Magnet as my 2nd choice, and now I am on the Wait List for another school. Can I still apply to Uni's Magnet?
A: You will need to decline your placement on the Wait List for the other school. Then you will need to apply to Uni on the Space Available application listed above. If you know that you want to come to University High School even if you don't get into the Magnet, then I suggest you also apply for Open Enrollment (available on May 5th) as a back up.
