YVC can award high school credit based on evidence showing what students have already learned. High School+ builds on prior student achievement. In contrast, a high school equivalency (GED) exam does recognize any prior learning or high school credits earned. However, that does not mean that High School+ is easier than taking a high school equivalency (GED) exam.
YVC can grant high school credit based on student performance on YVC placement tools. An evaluation of a high school transcript will show which high school credits will transfer into High School+ program. Students may also be able to earn credits based on prior knowledge through high school training and/or work experience.
