Adult High School (AHS) Diploma

The Adult High School (AHS) Diploma Program is a program designed to meet the needs of adults, 18 years of age and older, who have not completed high school. A placement test is administered and interested students are required to demonstrate a high school level of proficiency in reading, math and language skills, in order to be admitted into the Adult High School Diploma Program. High school transcripts are evaluated by lead instructors in the Adult Learning Centers. Students entering the AHS program must complete the course requirement which is based on the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. The program requires an 85 percent mastery of all class work completion. Students requiring more than 6 high school credits are encouraged to pursue their HSE. Students work with instructors, independently, in small groups and on computerized instructional units. Books and materials are provided for classroom use only. When a student meets the requirements for program completion, he/she is awarded an Adult High School Diploma by the College.
