Early Graduation

Early Graduation Requirements 

Early Graduation is a deliberate pathway for students in grades 9-11 who wish to move on when ready, receive a diploma from the district and be eligible for acceptance into Kentucky public universities and non-profit independent colleges and universities. The pathway provides a financial scholarship, known as the Early Graduation Certificate, to support this action. Students participating in the pathway must meet the requirements set forth by 704 KAR 3:305 including those listed below. Students must:

  • Notify the school principal within the first 30 days of the school year in which they intend to graduate.

  • Enter the Early Graduation pathway prior to October 1 of the year in which they intend to graduate early.

  • Graduate in three years or less. Students exceeding three years do not qualify for the incentives identified with Early Graduation.

  • Take the state-administered college readiness exam and meet the college readiness exam benchmarks as set by the Council on Postsecondary Education in 13 KAR 2:020 for placement in credit-bearing courses without the need for remediation.

  • Take and score proficient on all required End-of-Course Assessments (EOCs). To meet this requirement, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) will provide EOCs for those students participating in the Early Graduation pathway during the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 school year.
