Graduation requirements at CCS are designed to ensure that a student will meet the minimum college entrance requirements at most universities (including all 17 institutions in the UNC system). Students should check with the Admissions staff of their intended colleges for specific requirements.
The Graduation Requirements Worksheet is an outline of the current graduation requirements, with the suggested grade level for each course. Students transferring from other schools may find themselves following a different order of classes. Students who are transferring from other learning environments will not be penalized for courses that were not offered. In some situations, students may be required to obtain credit from independent study, dual enrollment at a college, or summer courses from an approved institution.
