High School 21+

Over 21 and need to get your high school diploma?

As a High School 21+ student, you can receive a high school diploma by demonstrating your competence in reading, writing, math, and other required subject areas. Experience you have gained through your life, work, or school can count toward your diploma, and you can pick up the rest of what you need at a reduced tuition rate at SPSCC.

Benefits of receiving your diploma through HS21+ include qualification for more Federal financial aid for college and, because you will earn an actual diploma rather than an equivalency like the GED®, you may be accepted into the military more easily.
