Little Rock, AR, Jan. 2, 2024 — Arkansas residents ages 21 and older who do not have a high school diploma can now finish school online for free through a new program from Graduation Alliance called the Arkansas Adult Diploma Program. Graduates earn an accredited high school diploma.

“This program is designed for working adults who need a flexible education option,” Ron Klausner, CEO of Graduation Alliance, said. “Coursework can be completed anytime and anywhere, and learners receive support from teachers, a personal coach, and 24/7 tutors.”

Graduation Alliance can offer this program for free through a state-funded initiative administered by the Arkansas Department of Education – Division of Career and Technical Education.

“There is no cost to students for this program, and they graduate with a diploma, which is proven to increase earnings and job prospects,” Klausner said. “It’s a win-win.”

Students can also choose from a variety of workforce credentials in fields such as construction, healthcare, and IT to further boost their employability.

To qualify for the program, applicants must:
– Be an Arkansas resident
– Be age 21 or older
– Have access to a computer and the internet
– Have completed at least some of 10th grade
– Have not completed a GED or another high school equivalency diploma
