Finish Your High school Diploma with High School +
The HS+ Program at SPSCC allows adult students age 18 or older 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 workforce 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 6-9 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.
