Personal Finance Equivalencies

APPROVED EQUIVALENCIES FOR PERSONAL FINANCE CREDIT

The following is a list of the approved high school equivalency courses that may be used to meet the district's Personal Finance credit graduation requirement. While these equivalencies will meet district graduation requirements, they may not satisfy college admission requirements in all cases. Students should check with individual colleges for clarification regarding the use of particular equivalency courses.

Each of these courses automatically meet one of the graduation requirements listed for a course based on a student's particular credit needs. A student can request to have an equivalency course satisfy two graduation requirements listed for the course by completing and submitting an Equivalency Request Form to the school counseling office. It is important to understand that while an equivalency course may satisfy more than one graduation requirement, no course can be worth more than the total amount of credit it has been assigned.

* Students must pass both semesters (1.0 credit) of Financial Algebra or Mathematics of Personal Finance to meet the .5 Personal Finance equivalency through these courses.
