To ensure all LAUSD graduates have the option to enroll directly into a university and be prepared for a career, the District has implemented a College and Career Readiness through A-G initiative. LAUSD has aligned its graduation requirements with the California State University (CSU) A-G requirements, beginning with the graduating class of 2016. Students must earn a grade of "D" or better in "A-G" courses, and meet California Department of Education Requirements in addition to satisfying LAUSD additional requirements for LAUSD graduation. We are making the high school diploma a document that gives students the choice to transition straight into a college or into a career. Please note that for UCs, CSUs and other colleges, a grade of "C" or better in all coursework is required.
