High School Equivalency Program

24 & SCORE!

SUNY Sullivan’s 24-Credit Hour High School Equivalency Program lets you enroll in a degree program AND earn a high school equivalency diploma simultaneously after completing twenty-four (24) college credits in the following areas with a cumulative G.P.A. of 2.0 (C) or better:

  • Six (6) credits in English Language Arts, which can include writing, speaking, and/or literature
  • Three (3) credits in mathematics
  • Three (3) credits in natural science
  • Three (3) credits in social science
  • Three (3) credits in humanities
  • Six (6) credits in student’s degree program

All twenty-four (24) college credits apply toward a degree or certificate program. Students may take additional credits while completing the 24-credit hour program, including developmental education courses; however, those do not count toward the twenty-four (24) credits. Financial aid programs are available to qualifying students.

If you have questions, call the Office of Admissions at 845-434-5750 x4287.
