Graduation Requirements

  • Cox Mill High School's graduation requirements are determined by the State of North Carolina DPI and Cabarrus County Schools.  Graduation requirements can vary from one year to the next; it is important to consult the requirements in effect the year you entered high school. 
    Responsibility for tracking a student's progress is a collaborative effort between students, parents/guardians, and school counselors.  CMHS school counselors review graduation requirements with students annually. Consult your school counselor regarding questions or concerns about graduation requirements. 
    North Carolina's graduation requirements are geared to meet the minimum admission requirements of the UNC System. These may not meet Minimum Admission Requirements for some other colleges and universities.  Be sure to check Minimum Admission Requirements for the colleges to which you plan to apply.
