Ohio Graduation Requirements
To earn a high school diploma in Ohio, students must complete the state's required courses, then choose at least one pathway that will show readiness for college or career. These graduation requirements were set and adopted by the Ohio Legislature for students in the Class of 2019 and beyond. Recent legislation extended additional graduation options to the classes of 2019 and 2020.
Cincinnati Public Schools' students have three pathways to meet the state requirements to earn a high school diploma, which allows students to select which works best for them.
Some CPS high schools have additional requirements. See your counselor for additional information.
Up-to-date graduation requirements can be found on the Ohio Department of Education’s website.
