High School Equivalency
Anyone who wishes to obtain a High School Equivalency Diploma should be:
- 18 years or older as of September 1 of the current school year
- deficient in the credits needed for an Alberta High School Diploma
- out of school for at least 10 consecutive months
Gather 100 school credits through a combination of High School credits, credits for maturity and life experiences, and credits for adult education.
A minimum of 60 credits must be gained through classroom instruction in a school or other institution accredited by or acceptable to Alberta Education (for out-of-province students), offering approved senior high school courses.
The Accumulated Credit Checklist is an easy way to determine how many credits a student has and how many they still need for a High School Equivalency Diploma. Have a look in the credits section to learn more.
