  • If a student is a senior but still must complete one or more EOCs to graduate, will he/she be able to graduate?

    Currently, seniors may graduate through the Individual Graduation Committee (IGC) regardless of the number of EOC assessments they still need to pass.

  • If a student is not graduating this year and still has one or more EOCs required to graduate, how will that affect the student’s credit in the upcoming year?

    Posted by:

    This year only, if the student is not graduating and is currently enrolled in an EOC course, the EOC passing requirement will be waived if the student receives credit for that course. 

    If the student is not graduating and has an outstanding EOC assessment that they have not passed from a previous year, they will still need to retake and pass that EOC assessment prior to graduation.
