* Graduation requirements related to distance learning schools may vary by state. It is the parent’s responsibility to research these requirements and to ensure that they are met. Because each college or university has its own entrance requirements, parents/students will want to consult with the college of his or her choice in order to meet its specific high school program requirements.
