High school Graduation degree

Graduation Requirements

Florida students entering grade nine may choose from one of four options to earn a standard diploma. They are

  • 24-credit program*
  • 18-credit, Academically Challenging Curriculum to Enhance Learning (ACCEL) option
  • An International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum
  • An Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) curriculum

Florida's public high school graduation requirements are specified in the following sections of Florida Statute (F.S.):

*In addition to the four options available for students to earn a standard diploma listed above, Rule 6A-1.09963, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.), High School Graduation Requirements for Students with Disabilities, outlines two additional options that students with disabilities may complete within the 24-credit program. These include

  • specific requirements for students with disabilities for whom the individual education plan (IEP) has determined that participation in the Florida Alternate Assessment is the most appropriate measure of the student’s skills and instruction in the access points is the most appropriate means of providing the student access to the general curriculum.
  • specific requirements for a standard diploma for students with disabilities for whom the IEP team has determined that mastery of both academic and employment competencies is the most appropriate way for the student to demonstrate his or her skills.

Transfer Students

If a student transfers into a Florida public high school from out of country, out of state, a private school or a home school, the student's transcript is reviewed to determine if the student is required to take a Florida end-of-course (EOC) assessment in accordance with Rule 6A-1.09941, F.A.C., State Uniform Transfer of High School Credit. Refer to the High School Mathematics Statewide Assessments by State (PDF) chart for a listing of statewide assessment mathematics exit exams and Algebra 1 statewide assessments.

Graduation Program Planning

FloridaShines provides an array of academic advising, career readiness and distance learning resources for students and parents. These state-funded academic advising services make it easy for high school students to prepare for college or a career after graduation by enabling them to evaluate their progress toward high school graduation, college and career readiness and scholarship eligibility. In addition, they can explore Florida's college and university offerings (both traditional and distance learning programs), learn about financial aid and apply for admission. Dual enrolled high school students and those in accelerated education programs can even access online library resources used within Florida's colleges and universities.
