Under new criteria adopted by the State Board of Education, North Carolina students who follow a university-bound course of studies in high school will earn a seal on their diplomas representing their readiness for a four-year university, just as graduates headed for community college or the workplace will have seals reflecting the kinds of classes they have taken. A key part of the seal designations is the level of math achieved by the students, with those who earn a 2.6 GPA and pass algebra II or integrated math III being considered ready for college-level math, as determined by the state board.
