The California State Seal of Biliteracy Criteria established in legislation certifies attainment of a high level of proficiency in two or more languages.  If you are applying for a language that is not part of the AP test, American Sign Language, or a language that does not have a written system such as Mixteco, you can still qualify. Please contact your school coordinator to review your criteria equivalency. 


The English criteria includes:


  • Completion of all English language arts requirements for graduation with an overall grade point average of 2.0 or above. (If you received a "credit or no credit" for one of your classes please contact your school coordinator) 
  • Passing the California Standards test in English language arts administered in grade 11 at the proficient level of 3 or better. (This requirement will be waived due to the school closure last Spring)
  • For English learners not reclassified, attain the overall early advanced level on the ELPAC.

The criteria for proficiency in a language other than English is one of the following:


  • Passing a World Language Advanced Placement examination with a score of 3 or higher.
