A-G Courses

University of California A-G Courses

 

The University of California (UC) and the California State University (CSU) systems require students to complete a minimum core set of classes called the A-G requirements.  Not all courses that students take will fall into the core set of classes for the UC or CSU systems.  Some courses students are required to take complete basic California high school graduation requirements and are completely separate from the A-G requirements. 

 

Please note that even though a course is listed below as being approved by the University of California for Carnegie Schools-Riverside, it does not mean that the course is available each term.  Some courses are only available through our POD/Independent Studies program.  More courses are added to the list each year after they are reviewed and approved by the University of California.
