Graduation Requirements

Moorhead High School students must successfully complete 26 credits. All students participating in the graduation exercises must have completed the required minimum number of credits and met all graduation requirements as well as completed the Senior Checkout Process with his/her counselor. Students who fail to complete the Senior Checkout process will not be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony. Those students not participating in graduation will be able to pick up their diplomas beginning on the Monday following the ceremony.

Students will be required to return or pay for all library books, textbooks or other school-issued materials they failed to return during their years at MHS before they can begin the Senior Checkout process. The Senior Checkout process is required to participate in the graduation ceremony.

It is an expectation that all library books, textbooks, and other school-issued materials be returned every year. Students will be notified annually of missing materials.

If a senior has not served all of his or her assigned hours of detention by the second to the last Friday before graduation ceremonies, that senior will not be allowed to participate in the ceremonies.

For additional information refer to School Board Policy 640 on the school district website or in the school office.
