High School Equivalency Diploma

Individuals who left high school before graduating have an opportunity to earn a high school equivalency diploma by successfully passing an assessment approved by the Iowa Department of Education.  Students must be at least 17 years old to take the exam. 

Subjects covered by the test are Language Arts (Reading and Writing), Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.  Prospective graduates must first attend a local Adult Education class where the instructor will assess their skills, recommend instruction to prepare for the test and, at the appropriate time, refer them to a testing center.
