High-achieving Texas high school students will have the opportunity to graduate up to a year ahead of schedule under a first of its kind program being piloted by The University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M University. The Early Readiness High School Graduation Option, established by the Texas Legislature in 2009, allows participating school districts to grant diplomas to students who are certified as “college ready” by the state’s flagship research institutions, even if the students have not completed all of the credits typically required for high school graduation.
