If you never completed high school and are wanting to further your education and career goals, then seeking out adult education programs will be a smart move. This is especially true when you choose the flexible and supportive environment of Broward Community Schools.

To help you prepare for your new education journey, here are some answers to frequently asked questions about our adult high school diploma program.

Is an Adult High School Diploma the Same Thing as a GED?

This is often one of the biggest points of confusion for adults still seeking a high school diploma. An adult high school diploma isn’t the same thing as a GED. An adult high school diploma requires students to complete the remaining coursework needed to fulfill the credits required to graduate high school.

On the other hand, students can get a GED by passing a standardized GED test, which is often best done with some preparatory coursework. Because of this, it’s recommended that students get an adult high school diploma if they are only missing a few credits. Students who are further behind might be best off pursuing a GED.

How Do I Qualify for the Adult High School Diploma Program?

To enroll in the Adult High School Diploma program, you need to be at least 16 years of age and be officially withdrawn from high school. You’ll need to complete coursework that fulfills the 24 credits required for graduation on a 2.0 to 4.0 GPA scale.
