College Admission Requirements
Community College/Vocational Schools - There are no specific course admission requirements, although a strong high school program is recommended. To enroll, a student must be a high school graduate, have passed the California Proficiency Examination, or be 18 years old. Students entering community college with the intention to transfer to a four-year college are strongly advised to complete a high school course program like that of their classmates applying directly to a four-year college from high school.
CSU and UC Subject Admission Requirements - To be a competitive applicant you should complete a challenging program that prepares you well beyond these minimum requirements. You must complete the high school subjects below with at least a “C” grade in each course.
