College Entrance Requirements
Most colleges have courses they require incoming students to have taken in high school. Unfortunately, not all schools have the same entrance requirements. Some colleges might have entrance requirements that exceed Community High School District 155's graduation requirements.
When a student knows what college he/she would like to attend, he/she should carefully check that school's entrance requirements. The following high school courses would meet the requirements of most colleges:
- English >> 4 years
- Math >> 3 years
- Science >> 3 years
- Social Science >> 3 years
- Foreign Language/Fine Arts >> 2 years
Many colleges require less or will allow substitutions with vocational courses. Most universities require that these courses come from our regular honors track.
College entrance requirements are confusing and subject to change without notice. District 155 encourages all students to meet with guidance counselors to help clarify the requirements for specific schools or study.
