Complete Your High School Diploma (HS+) or Earn Your GED®

If your high school education was interrupted, Spokane Community College offers two paths to finish high school: 

  1. High School+ (HS+)
  2. GED® preparation classes to help you pass the GED tests. 

You can start anytime.  Classes are available in person, online, or a mix of both.  
Our counselors will help you to figure which is the best pathway for you. 

High School Diploma (HS+)

You may have more credits than you realize. Credits are competency-based. Previous education, life, and work experience may count towards your high school diploma. Credits are earned based on skills and abilities, not time.

You must be 18 years old or older to enroll in our High School+ Program.

HS+ Dual Enrollment

HS+ students can earn high school and college credits at the same time at no cost to you.

How can I get started?

  1. Enroll in HS+ at SCC
  2. Have your transcripts evaluated by SCC. Your counselor will help you with this.
  3. If you need 3 credits or fewer to graduate: you can take dual credit right away. If you need more than 3 credits to graduate: you need to take and pass 2 HS+ classes with 2.0 or higher.
