Regular High School Diploma


Everything you need for graduation

The DLC offers everything you need for graduation with over 140 courses to choose from.


Students in Saskatchewan are required to complete 24 courses to complete their high school diploma. Some courses are required while others are electives that can be utilized to explore individual interests or begin a career path.



What is the difference between required courses and electives?

There are three categories of high school courses in Saskatchewan:


Required courses - compulsory courses intended to provide a general education

Specified areas of study - intended to expand general areas of education and allow students to begin specializing in areas of interest

Electives - allow for further exploration in areas of interest or to meet post-secondary needs

Are you an adult student with only a few credits?

If you still have all or most of your credits to complete your diploma, the Adult 12 program might be a better fit for you.
