• Do Home Edu students receive a diploma?

    There is no diploma issued by the public school system in Florida for the completion of a home education program.

    A signed affidavit of completion (notarized letter) submitted by the student’s parent attesting that the student has completed a home education program, pursuant to the requirements of FL St.1002.41 is the legal document of completion.

    As stated in s.1007 263(2)(a) it is equivalent to a high school diploma and is regularly accepted by state colleges and universities as proof of high school completion. This statement can be included on a student’s academic transcript or parent-issued diploma. While not required, some students elect to culminate their home education program by taking the General Educational Development (GED) test. A student is issued a diploma from the Department of Education upon passage of the test. The toll free number for information pertaining to the GED is 1-800-237-5113
