What exact regents do you need to pass in order to receive a nys regents diploma?? everyone has told me you need algebra AND geometry but ive researched a little and seen that you only need algebra to get a regent diploma. is this true?? does anyone know exactly what i need??
For a regular regents diploma you only need 1 math regent – Algebra is enough. However, in order to get a regents diploma, you first have to qualify for a high school diploma which includes passing 3 years of math. (That’s the reason most schools teach Geometry and Algebra 2 as well.)

thanks for your help! i think i get it now. but in my school, i think to get a high school diploma you need only 2 maths- algebra and geometry.
you must get a 65 or higher on five Regents Exams: Integrated Algebra (or Math A), Global History and Geography, U.S. History and Government, Comprehensive English, and any one science regents. To receive an Advanced Regents Diploma, you must also pass an additional Regents science exam, (Earth Science, Chemistry, or Physics), an additional math exam (Geometry, Algebra 2/ Trigonometry, or Math B), and a foreign language exam.
