Bemidji High School seniors should pay close attention to the May 1 deadline (26 of their required 28 credits completed by May 1 for a Bemidji High School diploma) in order to participate in their graduation ceremony. If you have a number of credits to complete, you must see your AEC teachers several times a week to complete all the course requirements.

The Bemidji AEC also assists out-of-district students in earning their high school’s diploma. If you choose to receive your diploma from a high school other than Bemidji, you should contact that particular high school for the graduation requirements.
