Graduation Requirements

In New York State, students can earn three types of diplomas:
  1. A Regents diploma
  2. An advanced Regents diploma
  3. A local diploma
All of these diplomas are valid high school diplomas. All students can earn a Regents or advanced Regents diploma. An advanced Regents diploma lets students show additional skills in math, science, and languages other than English. Only some students who meet specific criteria can graduate with a local diploma, with lower exam scores.

To earn a diploma, students must earn specific course credits and pass specific Regents exams. If you believe you are not on track to graduate, please speak to your school’s guidance counselor immediately.
