High School+ Program
The High School+ (HS+) Program at SPSCC allows students Age 18 or older to earn a high school diploma issued by SPSCC and the State of Washington. A HS+ diploma is a competency based, GED alternative and meets the requirements for a high school diploma for employment, financial aid applications, and admission to a community or technical college. Please work with your advisor and instructors if you are planning to attend a four-year college or university after completing HS+.
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.
Where are classes? HS+ classes are offered both online and in-person at Olympia, Lacey, and Yelm locations.
What's the cost? The program costs $35 per quarter and financial assistance is available.
How long does it take? The program is self-paced and flexible so you can earn your diploma quickly or take more time if you need it.
Is there an age limit? 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 also available at your local high school or school district office.
