High School or Equivalent Completed?

Previous

This is question 26 on the FAFSA.

High school diploma means the student has received or will receive a U.S. high school diploma before the first date of his/her enrollment in college or the student has received or will receive a foreign school diploma that is equivalent to a U.S. high school diploma before the first date of his/her enrollment in college.

General Educational Development (GED) certificate or state authorized high school equivalent certificate means the student has received or will receive a GED certificate or state authorized high school equivalent certificate before the first date of his/her enrollment in college. A state authorized high school equivalent certificate is a certificate that the issuing state recognizes as the equivalent of a high school diploma in that state. Note: A high school certificate of attendance and/or a certificate of completion are NOT the equivalent of a high school diploma.

Home schooled means the student has completed or will complete home schooling at the secondary level regulated by the state before the first date of his/her enrollment in college.

None of the above means the student does not have a high school diploma, GED, or equivalent and did not complete secondary school in a home school setting.
