High School Graduation Requirements & A-G
SFUSD adopted a policy that aligns high school graduation and the A-G requirements. To ensure that all students take college preparatory courses and have the option of applying to a wide range of colleges and universities, students must meet these requirements with a D or better in order to earn a high school diploma. To be UC/CSU eligible, students must complete these courses with a C or better.
What Is A-G?
A-G are 15 year-long college preparatory courses established by the University of California (UC). These are the minimum required courses students must take during high school in order to be eligible to apply to UCs/CSUs. SFUSD's high school graduation requirements are aligned with A-G; however, there are slight differences.
