Majority of California high school grads ineligible for California public universities

Some districts changing graduation requirements

Fewer than 4 in 10 students are meeting the minimum requirement to be eligible for a California public university, fueling worries that the state will have a shortage of college-educated workers.

To be eligible for a University of California or California State University campus, high school students need 15 classes with a C or better, including foreign language, lab science, intermediate algebra, and visual or performing arts.

At the current rate, educators and policy experts say far too few students are finishing high school with the coursework needed to even apply to one of the schools. In an effort to prime the pipeline, a growing number of school districts are requiring UC and CSU prerequisites for graduation.

The college entrance requirements are much stuffer than California’s statewide graduation requirements.
