In New York State, students can earn three types of diplomas:
- A Regents diploma
- An advanced Regents diploma
- A local diploma
All of these diplomas are valid high school diplomas. All students can earn a Regents or Advanced Regents diploma. At this moment, AFSE does not currently offer an Advanced Regents Diploma. Only some students who meet specific criteria can graduate with a local diploma, with lower exam scores.
To earn a diploma, students must earn specific course credits and pass specific Regents exams. If you believe your student is not on track to graduate, please speak to your school’s guidance counselor immediately.
