The Tennessee Department of Education has raised standards and aligned graduation requirements to best prepare students for college and the workforce.
Following the implementation of the Tennessee Diploma Project in 2009, high school students must complete 22 credits to graduate. They also will be tested in core subject areas with End of Course exams, part of the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program, or TCAP. Their performance on these exams will factor into their semester grade for the course.
Total Credits: 22
Graduates in need of a duplicate copy of their high school diploma should complete the Duplicate Diploma Request Form.
