Elective courses are considered to be those that may be required by a school for credit and/or for a high school diploma, but are outside the required classes in traditional subject areas (English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, Health and Wellness and any required Career and Technical Education, Fine Art, Word Language, etc., courses). Elective courses can be in the above mentioned subject areas, but are classes that are not required, though a specific number of credits in “elective” courses may need to be earned to qualify for a high school diploma. These courses are more often considered those that students are able to choose for themselves based on desire and interest in the subject matter.
- Students should select electives in a deliberate manner to take full advantage of college and career exploration and preparation opportunities.
- The Indiana Core 40, Core 40 with Academic Honors and the Core 40 with Technical Honors diplomas (class of 2016 and beyond) require a minimum of 6 “elective” credits and 5 “directed elective” credits.
- The Indiana General High School Diploma (class of 2016 and beyond) requires a minimum of 6 “elective” credits and 5 “flex” credits, which can include elective courses.
- High school schedules provide time for many more electives during the high school years than the required minimum of 6 for all diploma types.
