Oregon Diploma Requirements

In January of 2007, the State Board of Education voted to adopt new high school graduation requirements. These new requirements are designed to better prepare each student for success in college, work, and citizenship. To earn a diploma, students will need to successfully complete the credit requirements, demonstrate proficiency in the Essential Skills, and meet the personalized learning requirements.


The credit requirements below refer to state-wide requirements for the class of 2014 and serve as a minimum for graduation.
