*courses required for graduation and university admission.

The California Education Code (EC) establishes a minimum set of requirements for graduation from California high schools. The requirements should be viewed as minimums and support regulations established by local governing boards.

The University of California (UC) and the California State University (CSU) systems have established a uniform minimum set of courses required for admission as a freshman. The UC has created a Doorways site that provides complete information about the high school courses approved for admission to the university. In addition to the required courses, California public universities have other requirements for admission as a freshman (Outside Source).


Students must meet all of the academic requirements for graduation, and clear all absences and Saturday School requirements by the appointed time for senior check out.  Any violation of school behavioral expectations or Education Code 48900 or 48915 after senior final exams will disqualify a student to participate in the graduation ceremony.  Students who require summer school credits to complete the graduation requirements will not participate in the graduation ceremony.
