High School+


Earn a High School diploma through HS+

The HS+ Program at SPSCC allows adult students (age 18 or older) the opportunity to earn a High School diploma issued by SPSCC and the State of Washington. Students can apply credits earned in high school and knowledge gained in the work force toward a HS+ Diploma. Any remaining credits can be earned through self-paced assignments in the HS+ class. 

HS+ classes are offered both online and in-person. The cost for the program is $35 per quarter and financial assistance is available. Most students are able to complete a HS+ Diploma in 3-6 months. 

You must be at least 18 years old to enroll in HS+ and there is no age limit to enroll in HS+. Students who are not yet 19 years old must also submit a completed High School release form, signed by a school official and parent or guardian. This form is available at your local high school or school district office.
