    A-G Requirements

    A-G requirements are the courses that students need to take and pass to be eligible to apply to any UC/CSU directly out of high school.  High school level math or world language classes during middle school can use these courses towards the below requirements for A-G.  All classes must be passed with a "C" or better. Math and world language classes taken and passed during middle school will count towards meeting these requirements. Math and world language courses can be validated by a higer level course. Validation specifics can be seen on the UCOP site, or ask your counselor.
