About the ‘A-G’ Requirements
To be considered for admission to a University of California campus, such as UC San Diego, students must complete 15 yearlong high school courses with a grade of C or better — at least 11 of them prior to their senior year.
For California State University schools, such as San Diego State University, the "A-G" courses are also a requirement. The California State University's website can help you to chart a path to one of its schools:
Doing well in "A-G" courses will also help you in community colleges, professional schools and wherever your after-high-school life will take you. They provide an excellent foundation for future learning. For more information on these courses, see your counselor.
