Grad Requirements

High school graduation requirements and college/university entrance requirements are not the same.

College admission requirements can vary from school to school. We recommend that students check admission requirements before applying to their college of choice.

Students are encouraged to reach out to their High School Counselor if they have questions about graduation requirements or the college admissions process.
