Eligibility requirements vary based on school and state. If students meet CSU/UC entrance requirements, they will generally fulfill out-of-state entrance requirements. Students need to verify eligibility. Most colleges guarantee a 4-year graduation plan. Due to the economic situation, many colleges are flexible and generous with waiving fees and financial aid. We encourage students to look outside of California and keep all options open.
