High School Courses: Every student in the San Diego Unified School District will be completing the University of California's "A-G" entrance requirements before graduation, beginning with the Class of 2016. Although the minimum requirements vary depending on the selected college or university, the A-G are among the most rigorous college preparation requirements. Every high school in the district has courses that meet these requirements; see counselors at individual schools for the courses that fit these requirements.
The California State University has an excellent website that will help you reach your dreams by getting a college or university degree.
Tests: To gain admission to college, students must also take and submit scores from either the ACT Assessment plus Writing, or the SAT Reasoning Test. Students applying to University of California campuses must also take two SAT subject tests. The high school counseling office can provide the testing information, dates and location. Students and parents/guardians can access additional information from the University of California and California State University.
More information can be found at the district's CCTE (College Career Technical Education Department) and the San Diego Community College District.
