Credit Requirements for High School Graduation
Credit requirements are very similar, if not the same, across the state. On this page you will find the requirements for Davis, Weber, and Ogden School Districts. Charter high schools may vary significantly depending on which school you attend. You will want to contact the specific charter school you would like to know graduation requirements for.
Foreign language is not a requirement for graduating high school in the state of Utah (unless a specific charter high school has that written into their charter). Foreign language classes are great for students to take, but again they are not required. When taken in high school (9th-12th grade) foreign language classes fall under elective credits. There are certain colleges that require a student to have taken at least 2 years of a foreign language in high school. The University of Utah is the only college in Utah that has that requirement. Students planning to go out of state should check with those individual colleges/universities. There also may be certain scholarships that have a foreign language requirement. One example is the Regents' Scholarship.
