Graduation Requirements

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 as well as satisfying additional LAUSD requirements for 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.

Career Pathway



·         Students in the graduating classes of 2017 - 2021 must pass all courses with a grade of "D" or better.

·         Semester courses earn 5 credits. Yearlong courses earn 10 credits. Exams do not earn any credits. 

Note: “Validation” refers to the granting of “a-g” credit when a student successfully completes advanced work (earning a grade of “C” or better) in an area of sequential knowledge. Validation does not meet numerical credit requirements, satisfy CDE requirements, or meet course enrollment requirements in any subject other than Language Other Than English (LOTE).
