International students accepted into the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board have the opportunity to graduate with an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).
The amount of time needed to graduate varies from student to student depending on their abilities. The majority of students will study 2-4 years before graduating.
Graduation can not be guaranteed for students with low level English.
Requirements are as follows:
- 30 credits (18 compulsory credits, 12 optional or elective credits)
- students must pass a senior compulsory English at the grade 12 level
- students must pass the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test
- 40 hours of community involvement
