Accredited High School Diplomas

The Henry Ford College admissions policy requires students to have attended an accredited institution before admission can be granted.

HFC’s Admission policy: “U.S. Citizens, Legal Permanent Residents, and individuals who are present in (or who will be admitted to) the United States in a status which allows them to enroll at the College, can be granted regular admission if the applicant has either graduated from a regionally accredited or state-approved U.S. high school or holds a General Education Development (GED) certificate.”

Online High schools are growing popularity, and HFC has provided a listing of acceptable and unacceptable online high schools for meeting the admission requirements. Note: this list is not exhaustive, and only represents schools that HFC has reviewed to date.
