Attention former HUSD students

California Senate Bill 172, effective January , 2016 eliminates the requirement that all California high school graduates pass the California High School Exit Exam.  This means that students from the graduating classes of 2004 through 2014 may now receive a diploma without having passed the California High School Exit Exam, if all other graduation requirements were met.  

Diplomas will be distributed beginning January 4, 2016.  To pick up your diploma you will need picture identification.  If you cannot pick up your diploma in person, please call HUSD Records Office at (510)784-2600 x 72626.  To receive your diploma, go to:
