A

Two years of history/social science, including one year of world history, cultures and geography; and one year of US history or one half year of US history and one half year of civics or American government.

B

Four years of college preparatory English that includes frequent and regular writing, and reading of classic and modern literature.  No more than one year of ESL-type courses can be used to meet this requirement.

C

Three years of college-preparatory mathematics that includes the topics covered in elementary and advanced algebra and two and three dimensional geometry.  Approved integrated math course may be used to fulfill part or this entire requirement, as may math courses taken in the seventh and eighth grades that your high school accepts as equivalent to its own math course.

D

Two years of laboratory science providing fundamental knowledge in two of these three foundational subjects: biology, chemistry or physics.  Advanced laboratory science classes that have biology, chemistry or physics as prerequisites and offer substantial additional material may be used to fulfill this requirement.  The final two years of an approved three-year integrated science program may be used to fulfill this requirement.

E

Two years of the same language other than English.  Courses should emphasize speaking and understanding, and include instruction in grammar, vocabulary, reading, composition and culture.  Courses in languages other than English taken in the seventh and eighth grades may be used to fulfill part of this requirement if your high school accepts them as equivalent to its own courses.
