Standard Adult Diploma
K-12 Diploma Completion
Also known as credit completion or credit recovery, participants in this program can complete the course requirements for a high school diploma from a Minnesota school district. Due to the intensive time commitment for adult students and expensive resource commitment for schools, many Minnesota ABE programs do not offer this model.
Test-Based Secondary Credential
The Minnesota Department of Education issues an equivalency diploma to Minnesotans who pass the GED exam.
New State Adult Diploma
This secondary credential option was offered beginning in 2014. The new state adult high school diploma is competency-based, completed through participation in an approved Minnesota Adult Basic Education program, and recognized by the state through a diploma awarded by MDE.
