Question by Ms. Clueless: How many high school credits do I need to get into UCLA?
One day I hope to get a BFA or maybe an MFA in Production/Directing from UCLA. However, I am having a heck of a time trying to find their credit requirements.
This is what my high school requires:
4 credits in English
3 credits in Social Studies
4 credits in Math
3 credits in Science
2 credits in a world language, (I’m taking Spanish)
1 credit of PE
1 credit of Fine Arts
6 credits in Electives
A total of 22 credits.
I am also taking a CTE (Career Technical Education, or a special class that prepares you for a job in that area) class for Film/TV Production.
Are those all the credits I will need for UCLA or is there something else? If someone could give me some specifics even if I have way more than I need, that would be great.
I would also be interested in finding out any credit info for USC or University of Berkley.
Thanks so much!

It should say on the admission website, but almost any regular high school curriculum is fine, unless you are taking a lot of free periods or something.
A note about the film school: you have to apply during your 2nd year at ucla and it is highly selective. if you want to assure your major is film, i would recommend usc/nyu because they let you apply to them as your major when you enter. if you do ucla, you risk not getting in when you apply and having to do another major, and the program is only 2 years instead of 4 (since u only do it ur junior/senior year).
