A-G Programs

The Subject Requirement, more commonly referred to as the “a-g” subject requirements, is one of three requirements needed to enter UC 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 intent of the “a-g” subject requirements is to ensure that students have attained a body of general knowledge that will provide breadth and perspective to new, more advanced study.

Courses from California high schools used to satisfy the “a-g” subject requirements must be certified by UC 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.

LPVROP offers a number of a-g courses, all of which are listed in the University of California’s online database that covers high schools, programs, online publishers, online schools and community colleges.
