Adult High School Diploma

Student receiving his diploma at the FUHSD Adult School Graduation

The minimum age to enroll is 18 years old and your high school class must have graduated. There is no maximum age limit for adult students who are returning to school to earn a high school diploma. You will need to bring your transcript from your last high school attended as well as one from any college(s) you might have attended. These transcripts will be evaluated to determine credits earned and credits still needed for graduation.
