General High School Graduation Requirements
You need to have a total of 21 credits in five areas of knowledge. Please mind that high school degrees based on life, military and work experience do not require formal classroom education. However, the more courses you did complete in a high school program, the less work/life experience you're required to have.
The following requirements are needed to obtain a high school diploma with some programs
- 21 credits of formal classroom education, or
- 11 credits of classroom education and 24 months life/work experience in the five Areas of Knowledge listed below, or
- 6 credits of classroom education and 36 months life/work experience in the five Areas of Knowledge listed below, or
- 48 months life/work experience in the five Areas of Knowledge listed below.
- You must be 18 years of age or older.
Since many people ask how the high school program works, we'll provide a typical example. If you attended high school for 2 years, you should've received at least 11 classroom credits. That would leave another 10 credits required for graduation. Look over the list of courses below to see how many from the 5 Areas of Knowledge you have life/work experience in. Do you know how to cook? Do you have a driver's license? Can you get your computer online? Do you know how to fill out a job application? Do you know how to play tennis or football? Almost every subject you have life or work experience in is worth high school credit.
