Credit Requirements

Planning your four years at Corona is easy when you refer to the chart below. First, determine whether your future plans include community college, an in-state public university, an ultimate university (i.e., the Ivy League schools), or somewhere in between. Then, plan to take at least the minimum course of study in each academic area. All students must meet the requirements in the left column in order to graduate. If in doubt, it is always a good idea to aim high and keep all doors open. When you decide later, you will be well-prepared for whichever path you choose.
