CVCC Adult Diploma Program

Adult Diploma Program

The Adult Diploma Program provides job training and an alternate pathway for adults, ages 18 or older, to earn an industry-recognized credential aligned to one of Ohio’s in-demand jobs (after passing the WorkKeys exam, course requirements, and assessments) AND awarded a state-issued high school diploma.

What makes this program different from a traditional high school setting is the delivery of instruction to adults. Instead of measuring academic achievement through clock hours, seat time or credits earned, the focus is on a competency-based approach that provides a self-paced option. Once competencies have been learned, adults then demonstrate mastery of skill. Each eligible adult works with the provider to create a customized student success plan.


  • Must be an Ohio resident age 18 years and older (as of 7/18/23) who has not obtained a high school diploma or GED.
  • The program is FREE and at NO COST to the student.
  • Registration for the Adult Diploma Program is contingent upon completion of the WorkKeys assessment.
