Manitoba High School Graduation Requirements

Manitoba Education requires that students complete 30 credits to achieve a High School diploma, from the time they begin S1 (Grade 9) to S4 (Grade 12). They are required to have 17 compulsory credits and 13 optional credits.

All Senior high school courses are assigned a certain value (credit).

A student who completes a course requiring approximately 110 hours (1 semester) earns 1 credit, while a course requiring approximately 55 hours (half semester) is worth 0.5 credit.

Credits fall into two categories:

Compulsory Course – a course in the subject areas listed for Grade 9 to Grade 12 that each student must earn a credit towards their Graduation Requirements (e.g. English Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Physical Education, Science etc..)

Optional Course (also known as Elective course) – is a course that students may choose based on their interests, abilities, values and career goals (e.g. Arts, Languages, Music, Industrial Arts, Information and Communication Technology etc..). Courses are either full credit or a half credit value. Students and parents are encouraged to discuss credit requirements with their school counsellors and teachers.

Students should ensure that they meet the entrance requirements of the post-secondary education (college or university), training or work situation they intend to pursue.
