    Academic Units

    The academic unit is the term normally used by colleges and universities to express a quantitative evaluation of high school courses acceptable as preparation for college. A full year academic course is evaluated as one unit; a semester course is evaluated as a half unit. Admissions requirements by four-year institutions generally require that a student complete 16 academic units upon graduation from high school. Colleges and universities determine what courses qualify as academic units. Generally speaking, courses in English, Mathematics, Science, World Language and Social Studies are acceptable. Physical Education and electives are not considered academic units. World Language required minimum years of study for four-year college applicants is two years of the same language taken during high school, grades 9–12.
