Adult high school diploma programs offer classes for high school credit. Adults who left high school before graduation can take the courses they need to earn a diploma.

  • Most classes meet in the evening, once a week, for a 15 week period during the school year.
  • Contact an adult high school program near you (See Locations) to get more details and to find out how to enroll.
  • Most programs charge tuition for adult high school classes.

How the Diploma Program Works

  • The first step is an assessment of your high school credits.
  • A coordinator or counselor will look at your high school transcript to see how many credits you earned in high school.
  • Then you can make a plan to earn the remaining credits you need to graduate.
  • When you have completed requirements, your adult high school diploma will be granted by the school district that sponsors the program.

  • Others take diploma classes to meet college entry requirements, such as algebra and chemistry.
