What is A-G? A-G defines the subject requirements for admission to The University of California schools. To meet minimum admission requirements, a student must complete 15 year-long college-preparatory high school courses with a letter grade of C or better — at least 11 of them prior to the last year of high school. Within these categories, there are subject-specific requirements detailed here. Why is A-G important? Students who wish to attend The University of California schools for their higher education must complete the minimum of 15 college-preparatory courses in the A-G categories above. In order to fulfill the subject requirement for a California resident, courses must be certified by UC as meeting the requirement and must be included on the school's UC-certified course list.
