College Preparation Checklist

If you want to attend a CSU or UC campus, the selective admission process requires certain courses from 8th grade on known as the “A-G” course requirements. The following plan explains the steps to take each year to meet those requirements.

Depending on what grade you are in when you start your planning, some of these steps may not apply to you. If you have not met the requirements or timetable for attending a CSU or UC or are interested in a career path that does not require a 4-year degree, don’t worry! You can enroll in a community college by following the steps outlined on this checklist for the 12th grade.
