Most EHS students use EHS classes only for supplemental credit and do not pursue a diploma from EHS. However, the Electronic High School offers a Utah diploma to a very restricted group of Utah students.http://www.rules.utah.gov/publicat/code/r277/r277-725.htm Based on budget numbers for the upcoming year, this option may not be available for FY 14 (July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014).

The current 24-credit requirement at the Electronic High School is rigorous and consistent with state board requirements for the 2010-2011 graduating class. View required coursework..

To be eligible for an EHS diploma, a Utah student must meet one of these three criteria:

  1. student is officially home-schooled and has an annual home-school affidavit granted by the district of residence
  2. student left school without earning a diploma and his/her school class has graduated
  3. district referrals

Please note: The Northwest Accreditation Commission requires students who earn a diploma must complete a minimum of 6 full credits (24 quarter classes) from EHS to qualify for an EHS diploma.

Choosing to graduate from EHS is a non-trivial decision and should be considered carefully by the student, his/her parents, and in consultation with the local school counselor.

Graduation Track Request Form

The student registers for an account at EHS and completes at least one quarter credit class before pursuing the EHS diploma option. We recommend you take a core class you know you need for graduation or an elective you are interested in.

After successfully completing at least one quarter class through EHS, please contact our EHS lead counselor Ava Chamberlain at ehs.counselors@ehs.uen.org. She will walk you through the following steps:

1) The student's previous local school - at the request of the student and his/her parents - sends an official transcript of credits to:

The Electronic High School
250 E. 500 S.
P.O. Box 144200
Salt Lake City, UT 84114-4200

2) A copy of student's birth certificate.

3) Home-schooled students also need to send a copy of the annual home-school affidavit to EHS each year.

Once EHS completes the transcript review and verifies the student is eligible to earn a diploma from EHS, the EHS counselors will work with you to create a list of required courses to be completed. After the student has completed all necessary courses and passed all required tests, a diploma is awarded.

State law requires a student to meet the 24 credit requirement established by the Utah State Board of Education. http://www.rules.utah.gov/publicat/code/r277/r277-700.htm

The current 24-credit requirement at the Electronic High School is rigorous and consistent with state board requirements for the 2010-2011 graduating class. View required coursework..

Because Utah students need to earn 24 credits to graduate within four years, students need to earn 6 full-credits each year to be full-time and to graduate on time.

The Utah Electronic High School classes are chunked into quarter-credits. So, a student needs to complete 24 quarter-credits each year to earn 6 full credits. A student completes the equivalent of 1 quarter class every 2 weeks all year round to be on track to graduate on time.

Students who want summers off have 39 weeks instead of 52 weeks to complete the required number of credits. These students need to be completing the equivalent of 1 quarter class per 1.5 weeks.

  • Year-round students who are enrolled in 3 classes should be completing the 3 quarter classes within 6 weeks.
  • Year-round students who are enrolled in 4 classes should be completing the 4 quarter classes within 8 weeks.
  • Nine-month students who are enrolled in 3 classes should be completing the 3 quarter classes within 4.5 weeks.
  • Nine-month students who are enrolled in 4 classes should be completing the 4 quarter classes within 6 weeks.

Progress - the EHS equivalent of attendance - is demonstrated by student completions of assignments and by successful completion of credits.
