High School Completion for International Students

Cascadia’s high school completion program is a great opportunity for students to earn their high school diploma while completing the requirements of their associate degree at the same time! Students in this program complete college-level coursework which is credited for both high school and college.

International students usually require two years (or six academic quarters) of full-time college-level courses to fulfill the requirements for both the high school diploma and associate degree.

Students interested in this program should submit transcripts for their high school or most recent coursework to the International Programs Office for evaluation when they apply to Cascadia College. Our advisors will then put together an academic plan which satisfies the requirements for both a high school diploma and associate degree.

Requirements to be admitted to the International High School Completion Program

  • Be 16 years old or older upon the start of studies
  • Be an international student (entering the US on a student visa)
  • Not have already received a high school diploma or equivalent in their home country or in the US
  • Recommended: have completed at least 9th grade (or equivalent in home country)

Once you complete an Associate’s degree at Cascadia College, you will also receive a
Washington State High school diploma.
