Graduation Requirements

Students who successfully complete all the following requirements of the State of Oregon, the Beaverton School District and Southridge High School, will be awarded a high school diploma.  

Students planning to enter a four-year university should note that they will need to meet their individual university’s admission requirements, which could vary from the requirements listed below. Students should work with specific college admissions representatives as they apply to colleges and complete the application process. Students planning to attend out-of-state and/or private colleges should work closely with their counselor to plan their high school course of study as it relates to specific admission requirements.

Only those students who have earned all the required graduation credits and passed their essential skills testing (reading, writing and math) may participate in graduation exercises (i.e., walk at graduation).  A student who successfully completes all graduation requirements of the Beaverton School District and Southridge High School and who is in good standing may participate in graduation exercises.
