Graduation Requirements

New Graduation Requirements for Class of 2016 forward


  • LAUSD is prioritizing the courses students need to ensure they are college-prepared and career-ready by graduation day. 

  • LAUSD is aligning our graduation requirements with the UC and CSU requirement of passing A-G courses with a grade of “C” or better. 

  • The A-G courses provide students with a solid foundation, giving students choices. College first or career first? 

    •Either choice, our students need to be prepared to read, write, think and speak at high levels to get a good-paying job with or without a college degree. 

    •By adopting A-G as the standard and requiring students to pass all A-G courses with a ‘C,’ LAUSD is raising the bar for all students, whether they go straight into a career or go on to higher education. 

    Requirement Transition 

    • LAUSD will transition to the new graduation requirements, beginning with the Class of 2016. 

    • For the Class of 2016, LAUSD will reestablish the minimum number of credits to graduate from 230 to 210. 

      This will allow students more chances to prepare for and pass A-G courses. 

      Students will also be required to pass all A-G courses, including Algebra 2 and two years of World Language, with the current passing grade of a “D.” 

    • For the Class of 2017 and beyond, LAUSD will raise the current passing grade from a “D” to “C” within the 15 required A-G courses.
