About University of California "a-g"

The University of California Subject Requirement, more commonly referred to as the "a-g" subject requirements, is one of three requirements needed to enter University of California as a freshman. Specifically, students must complete a pattern of 15 college-preparatory courses drawn from the areas of history/social science, English, math, lab science, a language other than English, the visual and performing arts and the college-preparatory elective. The University of California labels each subject area or requirement with a letter to easily identify the different course requirements. Courses from California high schools used to satisfy the "a-g" subject requirements must be certified by the University of California and appear on the school's "a-g" course list. These courses are to be academically challenging, involving substantial reading, writing, problems and laboratory work (as appropriate), and show serious attention to analytical thinking, factual content and developing students' oral and listening skills.
