As of July 1, 2012, there will be significant legislative changes which will no longer allow students without a high school diploma or a recognized equivalent (GED) to receive Federal Financial Aid to attend college.
How can colleges ensure that these students are not missed and give them an option to get started even if they do not have a high school diploma or equivalency?
ed2go's Career Online High School (COHS) is a fast-track, AdvancED/SACS accredited, online high school program that is specifically designed to re-engage adults who never earned their high school diploma back into the educational system, giving them a bridge to start their education, their career and their life. For colleges, this means retaining those students who did not complete high school (formerly referred to as ATB students) and even appealing to a new audience of students who did not think they could enroll in college by offering an online high school program option.
