  • Request transcripts from your past schools to verify the classes you’ve taken and the ones you need to complete
  • Prepare a weekly study schedule (you must complete at least 40 hours each year)
  • Keep in touch to see how well you’re doing and help you stay on track
  • Design your graduation plan, which may include both basic education and high school completion classes
  • Arrange for a tutor if you would like
