The Indiana State Board of Education adopts course and credit requirements for earning a high school diploma. Current course and credit requirements went into effect for students who entered high school in the fall of 2012 (Class of 2016). Students have the option of earning an Indiana Diploma with the following designation(s):

  • General;
  • Core 40;
  • Core 40 with Academic Honors (AHD); or
  • Core 40 with Technical Honors (THD) (Illiana does not yet offer this diploma).

To earn an Indiana Diploma, students in the graduating classes of 2019 – 2022 must:

  • Meet course and credit requirements; and
  • Pass the Graduation Qualifying Exam (GQE)/qualify for a GQE waiver; or complete the Graduation Pathways (if offered by the school).
