Graduation Requirements
Credits for graduation from the Randolph County School System are counted from the ninth grade forward. Some courses taken at the middle school level are eligible to receive high school credit. These courses completed at the middle school are not counted in a student's high school GPA. Students must successfully complete his/her maximum potential for earning credit over a four-year span less four credits. Maximum potential is defined as an individual student's opportunity to earn all high school credits available within an academic year.

The minimum number of credits needed to graduate in Randolph County is twenty-eight (28). Students can earn thirty-two (32) or more credits. The minimum number of credits needed to graduate is based upon the potential and/or the Randolph County School System minimum requirements.

High School Graduation Requirements

North Carolina's high school graduation requirements are outlined below for students entering ninth grade in 2012-13 or later. To make sure students stay on track for a high school diploma, please remember that every high school student must meet state course and credit requirements in addition to any local requirements. Beginning with the 2015-16 school year, North Carolina will have a standard high school grading scale and letter grades for students in grades nine through twelve. This information is below the requirements chart. Requirements for students who entered ninth grade before 2012-13 are online:

See your school counselor for additional information or assistance about reaching high school graduation.
High School Grading Scale, Grade Point Average Calculations

In October 2014, the State Board approved a standard 10-point grading scale to begin with the 2015-16 school year for all high school students. This scale will not include "pluses" or "minuses." Grades from prior years will not be altered retroactively.

Local school districts are required to follow the new scale at the high school level (grades 9-12). Although it is not required at grades K-8, local school districts may use the scale in lower grades if desired.

Under the new scale, grades and grade point average calculations will be applied as follows:

A: 90-100 = 4.0

B: 80-89 = 3.0

C: 70-79 = 2.0

D: 60-69 = 1.0

F: < 59 = 0.0

Quality Points: In addition to the grade scale change, new standards for quality points also takes effect in the 2015-16 school year. These new standards affect only ninth graders in the fall of 2015-16 and all students entering high school after that year. This change does not affect students who will be in grades 10, 11, or 12 in 2015-16.

The new quality points standard will provide an additional .5 quality point to Honors courses and a 1.0 additional quality point to Advanced Placement (AP)/International Baccalaureate (IB) courses, community colleges courses, or four-year university or college courses taken in high school. This eliminates discrepancies between AP/IB and community college or college/university courses and quality points and provides the same additional quality point to all college-level coursework.

For example, a student who earns an A in an AP course would receive a weighted 5.0 grade for that particular course. A student who earns an A in an Honors course would receive a weighted 4.5 grade.
