IUHS is for ME!

Earn a diploma from Indiana University High School or from your former high school—without leaving the comfort and privacy of your own home.

If you're thinking about resuming your high school studies after being out of school, here are a couple of reasons why you really should. First, studies show that most employers, including the military, and many colleges and universities place more value on a high school diploma than on a GED. In addition, recent U.S. census results show that workers with a diploma earn $7000 per year more than workers who haven't finished high school.

Taking courses can be challenging when you're trying to juggle school with your job and family. With IUHS, you can work at your own pace and on your own schedule. You're given up to 12 months to finish a course—but if you apply yourself, you can complete many courses in 12 to 18 weeks.

Even though you're working from home, your teachers are available via phone or email to answer your questions. You get individualized feedback on every assignment and exam. So although you do not share a classroom, you'll feel like youre teachers get to know you.

If you decide to complete your diploma through IUHS, you can choose from three diploma tracks: general education, college prep, or academic honors. You choose when and where to study. You may even choose to receive a diploma from the same high school where you began your studies—even if all your remaining course work is completed via IUHS.

IUHS is for adult learners!

If you want to take IUHS courses to earn a diploma from your local high school, talk to the school guidance counselor first to see how IUHS credits apply to the school's requirements and to confirm that the school will award your diploma when you've completed your IUHS course work.

If you prefer to continue your high school education as an IUHS diploma student, talk with an IUHS advisor about what you need to do to transfer prior course work to IUHS or to register for IUHS courses.
