Indiana’s Core 40 is considered the minimum academic foundation all students need to succeed in college, apprenticeship programs, military training and the workforce. A Core 40 diploma indicates a student has taken the required 40 credits in language arts, math, science, social studies, physical education, health and electives including world languages, career/technical, and fine arts. Core 40 became Indiana’s required high school curriculum in fall 2007. Students entering high school since 2007 have been expected to complete Core 40 as a graduation requirement. To graduate with less than Core 40, a student must complete a formal opt-out process involving parental consent.
- The Core 40 diploma is designed to prepare you for many college programs and careers.
- There are 40 total state credits required, however some schools may have additional local graduation requirements that apply to all students.
- 5 credits are required to be world languages, fine arts or career and technical education courses.
- To succeed in college-level work, students need to complete Core 40 in high school. Anything less may mean taking remedial (high school) coursework in college
- Core 40 is a college admissions requirement in Indiana: Starting in fall 2011, students were unable to start at a four-year public Indiana college without Core 40 (or a documented equivalent). Most private colleges require students to have at least this level of high school academic preparation.
- The Core 40 diploma can help you earn money for college. Indiana students who complete a Core 40 diploma and meet other financial aid and grade requirements can receive up to 90 percent of approved tuition and fees at eligible colleges.
