Bellevue College, Center for High School Programs Department offers high school completion coursework that meets the minimum credit requirements for a diploma in Washington State. It is granted by Bellevue College and is recognized just the same as a diploma issued by any accredited (official) high school in Washington State. Eligible students must be 16 years old by September 1st in order to begin that current school year. The program allows students to continue in the program either until completion or until they reach 20 years of age which ever comes first. However, students 20 year of age are able to finish through that academic year. Unfortunately as a State Program there are no exceptions.
This program expands high school completion options already offered by the community and technical college system to include a comprehensive approach that aligns with adult learning styles and schedules. Courses include competency-based assessments that demonstrate the academic, career and personal proficiency needed in further education and employment.
