The Adult High School Diploma program is tuition-free, and helps qualifying adults complete a high school diploma through individualized instruction. Students must pass required high school-level courses, and are awarded credit for previously completed high school courses.
The High School Equivalency Diploma program provides an opportunity for students who did not finish high school to earn their diploma. As of 2021, students have the option of completing the program by mail.
Obtaining a high school diploma can help open new doors for employment or advancement, or allow students to continue their education at RCC. The three nationally recognized assessments used to obtain the diploma in North Carolina are GED, HiSET, and TASC. Students can take the GED or HiSET tests on RCC’s campus.
