* US History is required for all US passport holders.  This requirement is waived for full IB diploma candidates.

** A student who transfers to CAC and enrolls in the full IB diploma program is expected to fulfill as many graduation requirements as possible as permitted by the schedule.  In some cases, if a course will not fit in with the schedule, a credit of Art/PE may be waived.
*** Any course taken beyond the number of units required in a given subject area is regarded as an elective in that subject area.
