Graduation Reqs

Graduation Requirements


Each graduating class has a specific set of requirements issued through the State of Washington in order to be eligible to earn a high school diploma. OSPI (Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction) provides a Graduation toolkit for each grad year to help navigate various requirements.  The toolkit includes:

  • Key Testing Dates

  • State Testing Requirements

  • Minimum Credit Requirements

  • Graduation Alternatives

As an alternative, students may consider other programs and options from this list of Graduation Resources.  Contact any of the institutions on this list for more information, or reach out to your CHS Counselor (see above).



To request a transcript (official or unofficial), complete the Transcript Request Form and click submit at the bottom of the page. Transcripts are processed as soon as possible, but please allow up to 3 days during busy times. The first six (6) transcripts are free of charge, and for everyone requested after six an additional $4.00 is charged. 

**It is important to note that parents/guardians can NOT request transcripts for students once they have graduated. 

For questions, please contact Sharla Hall, Registrar (425) 844-4808.

Cedarcrest students will have the opportunity to earn 1.0 elective credit when they complete their High School and Beyond Plan in Xello (formerly Career Cruising). To be eligible to earn this credit students must meet the following requirements: 

  • The 1.0 credit is broken down into 0.25 credit per year, so if a student is only here 2 years, the most that could be earned would be 0.5 credit

  • This is a supplementary 1.0 elective credit, not to be used in place of taking a full load (6 credits) of classes per year. 

  • A completed High and Beyond Plan consists of writing post-high school goals (in the SMART format), a 4-year academic plan and 100% completion of assigned activities in Xello. 

  • The activities include: uploading a recommendation worksheet and an up to date resume.

Students will work on their post-high school plans and build their 4-year plan during their freshmen conference, and will have a chance to revisit and revise throughout high school. Credit will be awarded June 1st of the student's senior year.


It is important to note that the activities will be evaluated for quality and completeness prior to awarding of the credit. If you have any questions, please contact your counselor. 

Running Start  


High school juniors and seniors have the opportunity to attend a community college and earn high school and college credit at the same time. The first step for a student to participate in the Running Start program is to contact any local community college, make an appointment to register, and take a placement examination. If students have taken and passed the placement examination, students then consult with their high school counselor to determine what college courses will fulfill their graduation requirements.
















A few things that students need to be aware of if they wish to participate in the Running Start program:

  • Students will need to complete a Running Start Verification Form before every quarter in order to register for classes. 

  • Students must provide their own transportation to the community college 

  • If a student drops a college class they must officially drop the class through the community college

  • Students must remember that they will be enrolled in regular college classes with adult students where attendance will not be taken and the students are responsible for their own actions and participation

  • The Riverview School District will pay for tuition in the Running Start program. The student must pay for their books, lab fees, and other additional expenses (unless otherwise specified). The Running Start program does not apply to summer quarters- only fall, winter, and spring quarters.

  • Colleges and high schools operate on different schedules. The student will need to check each school's calendar for term and/or semester starting dates, ending dates, vacation dates, and rotating daily schedules 

  • If a student is taking classes at both Running Start and Cedarcrest High School, the student understands that all policies and procedures regarding attendance and grades for CHS courses will be applicable. Running Start classes DO NOT take precedence over CHS required and/or elective classes. When developing a schedule for dual enrollment, students must account for transportation time and early release schedules for both institutions 

  • A five (5) credit college course is equal to 1.0 high school credits. For further information on this program, please talk to your counselor. Students may only take a certain number of credits through Running Start/ Additional credit expenses must be covered by the student. Students are responsible for obtaining all information given during announcements and advisory period. Students can obtain this information on the CHS website.
