South L.A. students will get priority admission to Cal State Dominguez Hills

Los Angeles Times 

Students in South Los Angeles public high schools will soon receive priority admission to Cal State Dominguez Hills. On Thursday, the Los Angeles Unified School District announced an agreement with the university to guarantee admission to students at Local District South high schools who meet requirements. Those include completion of the A-G course requirements that all L.A. Unified students will need to graduate, as well as certain GPAs and SAT scores on a sliding scale. The district's south area encompasses roughly 20 high schools and magnet programs with about 4,700 current high school seniors. The goal of the program is to get more students from the schools into science, technology, engineering, arts and math fields, which together are often called STEAM.
