Utah Electronic High School (EHS) offers online education primarily to students who require remedial classes or to wish accelerate graduation from their local high school. The Electronic High School grants diplomas to a very restricted group of Utah students: those who are home-schooled exclusively, those who have dropped out of school and their class has graduated, and district referrals. EHS does not grant diplomas to non-Utah students.

About Utah Electronic High School
Utah Electronic High School exists to educate, remediate, accelerate, and graduate Utah’s diverse learners with caring, qualified teachers using current technology to provide rigorous curricula, timely access to quality online instruction, and prompt professional feedback to student work. The courses are rigorous and require dedication by students. Each credit-granting class has a Utah teacher to mentor students for success.
Students can work on their class from computers connected to the Internet. At the end of each class, students must take and pass a proctored exam at a Utah school, library, or testing center. Local licensed Utah teachers are able to volunteer to proctor final tests for EHS students. The proctor signs up with EHS and is certified. When a student is ready for a final test, the EHS teacher adds the student to the proctored test area. The student arranges with an EHS-certified proctor to take the class final test in the presence of that proctor at an education location in Utah.

Utah Electronic High School Programs
Students admitted to the EHS graduation track need 24 credits to earn a diploma. Each EHS class, when completed successfully, generates one-quarter (0.25) of high-school credit. All classes generate letter grades to be added to the student’s transcript. Students need to work closely with their teacher to earn the letter grade they expect. As soon as the proctored final test is taken and passed, the final grade earned in the class is sent to the student’s school of record in Utah as an official quarter credit.
EHS expects students to complete a quarter class within six months and to submit work consistently – at least monthly – to remain on class rolls. The one exception is Fitness for Life which has a 7-week window to complete each quarter class.
