Schools and counselors in California use the UC A-G website to report “college preparatory” coursework to the public universities in California.
If you don’t live in California or attend a California high school, this is of no relevance to you. You should however look at subject requirements if you plan to apply to a public California college to make sure you take enough English, math, social studies, world language, electives, etc.

If you live in California, but don’t intend to apply to a California public college (UC or CSU), this information also does not apply to you.
