Graduation Requirements for Florida’s Statewide Assessments

(FSA & EOC ASSESSMENTS)

According to Florida law, students must meet all academic requirements in order to earn a standard high school diploma from a public school. This means that students must pass required courses, earn a minimum number of credits, earn a minimum grade point average, and pass the required statewide assessments: Florida Standards Assessments and Florida’s End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments. Students who meet these requirements but do not pass the required assessments for a diploma will receive a Certificate of Completion, which is not equivalent to a standard high school diploma. Depending on the school year, grade level, and diploma option, students who do not pass the required Florida EOC Assessments may not receive course credit. Passing scores for the statewide assessments are determined by the State Board of Education.
