Credit Requirements

A student must meet the minimum credit requirements outlined below to qualify for graduation from HPA. Credit is awarded for successful completion of required outlined course expectations. If a student does not fulfill the course credit requirement at time of graduation, a certificate will be issued in place of a diploma.

Students are strongly encouraged to explore as many disciplines and offerings as possible. Once department requirements have been satisfied, students are urged to enroll in advanced courses according to their interest. More selective colleges admit candidates who have challenged themselves throughout high school.
