PLAR (Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition)

Finish your high school diploma - you may be closer than you think!


The number of credits you require for Grade 12 depends on your age, your past education and employment, and other prior learning experiences.

An Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) requires 30 secondary school credits (which include some mandatory credits).

If you began secondary school prior to 1984, you may be eligible for the Secondary School Graduation Diploma (SSGD) which requires 27 credits.

If you have been out of school for one year, you may be eligible for maturity or Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) credits.
