The Adult Diploma Program was specifically designed for the 1.1 million Ohioans age 22 or older who have not yet earned their high school diploma or GED. In this program, students can simultaneously earn their high school diploma and a career enhancement certificate in a high-demand field in as little as 4 months. No minimum number of high school credits required!
To begin the process, all potential Adult Diploma Program students must take the ACT WorkKeys assessment. This skills assessment is a pre-requisite to enter the program. Students are encouraged to enroll in the Aspire program to prepare for the WorkKeys test. These classes are free and provide the preparation needed to be successful.
Once WorkKeys assessment scores are achieved, students will be eligible to apply for acceptance into the Adult Diploma Program. To apply, please contact Barb Heffner at (419) 998-2992 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment for possible enrollment into the Adult Diploma Program. Students must bring a valid ID.

- Must live in Ohio
- Must be at least 22 years of age
- Must NOT have a high school diploma or GED
- Must take the official WorkKeys test and receive a composite score of 14 plus meet the score requirements for the credential program.
