UC / CSU "a-g" Courses

UC / CSU "a-g" Courses

What are UC / CSU "a-g" requirements?

The University of California’s freshmen admission requirements represent a good measure of admission requirements for most colleges and universities. The “a - g” requirements created by the UC system indicate that a student must complete the high school courses listed below. Students must take 15 units of high school courses to fulfill the Subject Requirement - seven units of which must be taken in the last two years of high school. (A unit is equal to an academic year or two semesters of study.)  Note that some colleges and universities, especially private and out-of-state, may have different entrance requirements.
