State University Requirements

The Illinois State Board of Higher Education has set the following requirements for admission to state universities. It is recommended that all college-bound students meet these requirements.

  • 4 units of English
  • 3 units of Mathematics (Algebra, Geometry, Advanced Algebra)
  • 3 units of Science

The Brother Rice curriculum will enable our students to satisfy the Board’s requirements for Science and Social Studies by taking their elective options in those disciplines.
