High School Graduation Requirements
It is important to know what will be expected of you when you get to high school, especially if you plan to go to college. Be sure to keep the following information in mind:
- A verified unit of credit is awarded when, in addition to successfully completing a 140-hour course, the student passes a SOL test for certain courses in high school.
- For the Standard diploma, a student must earn 22 units of credit, as well as six verified credits. For the Advanced Studies diploma, a student must earn 24 to 26 standard units of credit (depending on when he or she entered ninth grade) with nine verified credits.
Please visit the Virginia Department of Education's (VDOE) website for specific information about high school graduation requirements.
