Oregon Adult High School Diploma (AHSD) Provider Resources

The Oregon Adult High School Diploma (AHSD) provides an opportunity for adults to earn a rigorous diploma equivalent to an Oregon high school diploma. The diploma is offered by Oregon community colleges. The AHSD meets all state graduation requirements as provided in Oregon Administrative Rules and enables students to move toward postsecondary education and credentials. If you work for an Oregon community college offering the AHSD, you can find guidance on requirements here.

Learn more about the Higher Education Coordinating Commission's support and coordination of Adult Basic Skills (ABS) here.
