What does the Diploma Program provide?
The Diploma Program provides those who want to earn a high school diploma the opportunity to bridge the gap between the GED and skills needed for better job opportunities, a new career, or a successful college experience.
How will the Diploma Program benefit me?
The Diploma Program was designed so people, like you, could show they have the skills and abilities expected of a high school graduate. You might see the Diploma Program as a means to a better job, promotion, or more income. For those who are interested in continuing their education, the program will enhance your math, reading and critical thinking skills for college.
Who is eligible to apply?
Adults who want to earn a high school diploma and their high school class has graduated are eligible to apply for the Diploma Program. Those who have not earned a GED are required to take a pre-test to determine eligibility (8th grade reading and math level) before applying to the program.
